Two nights in Philadelphia with mom

Jump to last reply

I am bringing my mom (83) to see the Philadelphia Flower show in 2 weeks. We will drive up from Virginia on Thursday, stay at the Courtyard Marriott near City Hall for 2 nights. We will spend most of Friday at the Flower show at the Convention Center.
We will have a little bit of time Thursday evening, Friday morning and evening, and then Saturday morning to walk around, maybe go in someplace, and of course we need to eat. My mother gets tired easily and needs frequent access to bathrooms. I envision her sitting a lot while I go off on short forays to look at/do stuff, come back to get her, then go on to the next sitting place while I look around! I love to eat good food so any suggestions for places that will not require reservations and aren't too loud would be great (up to $30 per person not including alcohol).
Any suggestions for places near the hotel for walking/browsing and eating would be appreciated!
Thanks!
