It's as close to being a dictatorship as humanly possible. Well, apart from the actual government.

I had a professor in college who was also from Jersey. He used to say, "Y'know, we're the smartest state around. In California, they put their highways all through the nice parts, all along the coasts. We put all our highways through the shitty parts, and keep the good stuff to ourselves."

It wasn't a professor of tourism and economics, was it?

What are the cool parts of the city to check out besides the obvious touristy crap (Penn's Landing, Independence Mall, etc)? I used to live in the burbs in SE Pennsylvania and found trips into Philly to see the Flyers thoroughly depressing when I wandered around the actual city before the game.

Being 16, I can't really talk about the nightlife having not experienced much. I know there are a lot of bars and nightclubs around Old City, a few blocks from all the tourist stuff.

If you wander around the sports complex, there's really nothing to do until you reach the Geno's-Pat's corner, almost a mile away. The complex is pretty seperated from the rest of the city.

I spend more time in the burbs, being that I live there.

Despite the fact I HATE coming here to work (I am here all summer), I do enjoy my free time here. I can just about always find something interesting to do or explore. They have a decent music scene with some good venues.

I am not sure I would want to live here, but again, I enjoy the social visit.
