My trip to Philly this weekend - What do you think? (LONG list)

ivie | Mar 31, 2005 05:48 PM

My boyfriend and I are driving down to Philly (from NYC) tomorrow for the weekend. We both have a list of places to go and things to do. We merged our two lists together, eliminating things from each other's list. We may try to hit every place, but it's a bit much for a weekend. I'm hoping you can provide some input. Maybe point out the "must do"s and the "don't waste your time"s. And even though the list is long, let us know if we missed someting!!

We basically want stuff that's unique to Philly. Keep in mind, we're tourists. :) Thanks in advance!
