THANKS to all the great folks on this Board for the advice and recommendations on chowing down and getting around in Philly. This will be our first visit to Philly, and we can't wait to get there.
I want to ask for your "editorial review" of our tentative plans and eateries. (I hope it's okay to ask for your feedback on places we are going to visit too as I've found chowhounds know a lot more than just good food!) I especially need your recommendation for dinner somewhere in the mutter museum or rittenhouse square area (not expensive--local flavor).
Day One (arrive in afternoon): check in at the Omni in Center City, check out the Independence visitor's center, walk Society Hill, dinner at Pho 75 at 12th & Washington, and pick up a cannoli at Isgro's at 10th and Christian Sts.
Day Two: Reading Terminal for coffee, breakfast and to buy for backpack lunch; audio tour of Independence Park, National Constitution Center, Dinner at Lakeside Deli
Day Three: Reading Terminal for coffee, breakfast and to buy for backpack lunch; Bartram's Garden (anyone been there?), then a drive to Morris Arboretum; dinner at Tierra Columbiana
Day Four: Reading Terminal for coffee, breakfast and to buy for backpack lunch, take phlash to eastern state penitentiary; phlash to mutter museum; if time--walk to rittenhouse square; DINNER WHERE??
Thanks again to all of you!
