Want to know the best time to see Philadelphia’s famous Boathouse Row? At sunrise in the fall a few days before Daylight Savings Time. It’s a very specific time and date and very early in the morning, but it’s worth it! And I am going to show you why 🙂 The best place to see […]

The history in Philadelphia is one of my favorite things about living in the city. If you don’t live in the city, you may know Old City Philadelphia as the place where the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are (plus tons of other places like Elfreth’s Alley, the Betsy Ross House, Christ Church, and more), […]

Eastern State Penitentiary is one of the creepiest places in Philadelphia- but also a photographer’s dream. I’m not one for horror movies or anything scary like that, but a visit Eastern State Penitentiary was too intriguing to pass up (and if you don’t like horror stuff, don’t worry, it really isn’t that scary!).

If you haven’t been to Philadelphia, I’m sure you know Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are here, but there are a ton of other beautiful historic buildings in Philadelphia, too.

If you read my Four Days in Philadelphia post, you saw that my college roommate, Stephanie, visited me in Philadelphia for the first time. Our first stop for the Philadelphia newbie? The Independence Hall tour! Yes, it is a tourist spot, but for good reason. You get a great history lesson on Philadelphia during the […]

My college roommate, Stephanie, came to visit me in Philadelphia for Labor Day weekend, and we packed in as much as we could over four days! We went all over the city and ate a ton of amazing food, and I created an itinerary for four days in Philadelphia so you can see all the […]

In my first Georgetown post I had pictures of the oldest house in Washington, D.C. dating from before the Revolutionary War, and this post is about Elfreth’s Alley, the oldest residential street in the United States right in Philadelphia! If you haven’t been to Elfreth’s Alley yet, it’s a quaint little street just a short […]
