Going to Philly....any suggestions?

As the thread title suggests....I'm going to Philly for a weekend in July. Other than catching a Phillies game (which I will be), does anyone have any suggestions of other places I should check out? The historical stuff leaps to mind like the Liberty Bell, but open to other things also.

Thanks

This band called U2's playing a gig there in July, you should check them out. I hear they're pretty good.

In Philly - go to 30th St Station (it's on 30th St, just west of the Schuykill River). You can buy train tickets to NY. Do that. Then get on the train with aforementioned ticket, and leave Philly. You will love it!

Or - South Street is a fun place to get some drinks. There's a lot of good restaurants and bars all around Philly. Rittenhouse is a nice area.

In all honesty, Beav is correct about one thing: South Street is pretty fun. New York is overrated, ignore the shit out of that statement.

Also, Beav: GFY.

I also heard you're British or something, so deal with THAT.

Nah, more in the way of the town you and I live in.

Anyway, I don't know what to do in Philly. But I bet it's actually real nice. Just watch out for the Origami Killer.

If I were to take your response literally, I would just go to Philly. That's basically like fucking myself.

My suggestion: Don't go. (PhilsFan, e.g.)
