Will definitely make an attempt to visit the aquarium and at least a few historic sites. H and I are both interested in Benjamin Franklin things and we also love food. A lot. I also thought one of those old-timey colonial restaurants could be fun, but I’d love to hear any recommendations.

@tmsing: Philly has the zoo, but not the aquarium. Adventure aquarium is across the river in Camden, NJ. Not sure if that matters, but for transportation wise I didn’t know what you had planned.
Personally, the art museum is amazing! I think it’s a must see! U-Penn’s campus is nice to stroll through!
As far as restuarants go… they’re everywhere! lol the food trucks are great too.

I’m not too familiar with the city, but the Reading Terminal Market is a lot of fun! There are tons of little food stands, all different ethnic foods, and little desserts and all kinds of things. The Art Museum is gorgeous, I haven’t been there in years, but it’s great.

@tmsing: I just wasn’t sure what your travel plans are. I believe that you would have to take a train out of center city. I THINK septa goes through camden, I’m not 100% sure since I don’t live there anymore lol!
