Philadelphia July 4th weekend help

Jump to last reply

We will be going to Philly for the July 4th weekend to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We'll be arriving on the 2nd and actually leaving on the 4th. There will be 7 of us, all family, ranging in ages from 21 to 60.

My husband and I have been to Philly a few times before and those trips tend to center around food. We both love interesting foods and don't mind spending money to get a great meal. We've eaten at Amada, Tinto, Parc, Rouge, Monks, Le Bec Fin, to name a few.

We are staying at The Doubletree on S. Broad St.

This trip will be differant as the rest of the family doesn't really care much about food and don't have tons of money to spend.

We will start on Saturday at Reading Market for lunch as I feel there is something every everyone there. From there maybe wander around, hit some bars and fun places. I'm thinking of Monks, Good Dog, McGillians, etc.


I know that on Sunday there is an ice cream festival on Penn's Landing. That might be fun to hit, then wander around the old city area. Not sure what else Philly has going on that weekend. When I googled it my computer got hit by a virus so I'm leery of doing a search again.

We've never been to the South St. area either.

We are a fun group, like to go out and have a good time. Whereas my husband and I like museums and doing the history thing, don't think this is the weekend for that.

Looking for any an all suggestions. Also for a place to have dinner that could fit a crowd like ours and won't break the bank. My sister's are extremely fussy so rule out many ethnic type of restaurants.

Thanks in advance for your help.
