History Museum
“When Eastern State opened more than 180 years ago, it changed the world. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. The building itself was an architectural wonder; it had running water and central heat before the White House, and attracted visitors from around the globe. ”

Beer Garden

“A classic beer garden set up. However, you have to go up to two separate windows to order drinks and food. The soft pretzel is WAY overpriced and the German beer they serve seems watered down. ”

“Pat's vs. Gino's is the long time Philadelphia Cheesesteak Rival. This is probably the most touristy place to buy a cheesesteak in Philadelphia. We both don't have a preference as to which place is best, but they are across the street from each other, so maybe you should decide?”

Sculpture Garden
“The Magic Gardens spans three city lots, and includes indoor galleries and a large outdoor labyrinth. It is a giant piece of art you can walk through and explore nooks & crannies. It is whimsical & facinating. To date, it is the largest work created by mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar. They host fun events, DIY art nights, live music & BYOB. Check the website calender for more information. ”
