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


**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 !!
