Advice on Philadelphia itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi all


Thank you for all of your help on my previous question about my Philadelphia itinerary. I believe I now have something workable and would love to hear your thoughts.




Thursday 7/23


Independence Hall


Liberty Bell


White/Todd House


Portrait Gallery/Second Bank of U.S.


Franklin Court


Carpenter’s Hall/Congress Hall


**Reading Market –lunch




I know it seems like a lot, but I believe Carpenter’s and Congress Hall are relatively small….should I skip them if it’s too much?




Friday 7/24




Philadelphia Art Museum *Matisse exhibit


Franklin Institute *Star Trek exhibit (I doubt I’ll have time for the Galileo, which I’d love to see)


Eastern State Penitentiary tour


**I’d love to take the trolley tour of Fairmount Park – any idea of where it leaves from?




Saturday 7/25


Italian Market


Mummer’s Museum


Elfreth’s Alley/2 house tours




**I know I’m probably leaving myself some extra time, but I don’t mind. I don’t like running around on vacation, trying to squeeze everything I can out of a day.




Sunday 7/26


Poe House **what’s the best way to get there? I’m likely to be staying in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood


Headhouse farmer’s market (I think the hours are 12-6, but I’m not sure)


Physick/Powel Houses




Monday 7/27


Reading Terminal Market /breakfast


City Hall tour


Chinatown/lunch


**This is a short day. I would have preferred to do this on another day when I could also do the tour of the Masonic temple, but I couldn’t do it and still fit in some of the other things on my schedule. Any advice as to how else to fill up my time?




Tuesday 7/28


Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology


Masonic Temple


U.S. Mint (?)


*Again, short …




Has anyone seen the Lights of Liberty night show? It sounds like a fun and cool thing to do…..


Again, this is just a very preliminary itinerary. I needed to jot it down to see how much time I would need – I was planning on 5 days but I need 6…..Thoughts?


Thanks so much !!
