Philadelphia Local Deals
In Philadelphia, home of Rocky and Ben Franklin, families gravitate toward the Philadelphia Zoo, the Franklin Institute and Liberty Bell.
The cheapest time to visit is the winter – when a travel itinerary heavy on indoor activities like Independence Hall, catching a Flyers or 76ers game in South Philly, shopping the massive farmers market at Reading Terminal Market and the Philadelphia Art Museum is advisable. (Running up the Art Museum steps a la Rocky is an optional, but awesome, photo op.)
Whatever the plans, don’t skip a meal – whether it’s a roast pork sandwich at Tony Luke’s, cheesesteaks with a side of attitude on South Street at Geno’s or Pat’s, crab fries at Chickie & Pete’s or Italian ice at Rita’s.
