you need your heart icon back, i keep getting messed up haha.

but i will always suggest the art museum, however if you're not into that thing it's boring.
out of everyone i've drug there, only the people that are into art realllly enjoyed themselves.

you could do all the touristy things in the city (i.e independence hall, etc) or you could just take a walk down south street and do some shopping or whatever.

i loved the horse and cart ride we did when i visited. i think anyone who isn't from philly would love it. i got to learn the history of the place and make friends with a horse.

maybe take her to a Phil's game?

picnic in rittenhouse square after hitting up the Italian market?

take her to the Gallery to go shopping?

go to the underground Ben Franklin musuem?

the horse carriage ride through old city is always a good time too!

My family loved that when they came to visit.

Hit up all of the tourist spots in Old city an Independence Mall area, then from their your only 2-4 blocks away from china town walk down their and when thats done you can do the reading terminal market. that should be a days worth, and you have all mass transit right under you at that point.

South street is a disaster right now with construction unless you like listeing to jack hammers...........

south street is always a disaster. carriage ride sounds nice.

any recommendations on places to eat...i was thinking lunch/early dinner friday and breakfast/brunch sat....bbq later in the afternoon.

i was thinking sabrinas bc then we could go to the italian market...but its always so damn packed :(

because i've had it since xmas and never used it.

i've never been to sabrinas when it wasn't crowded. it's just a small area which is hard to get comfortable in.

I always pass the sabrinas on callowhill when walking into center city. I've never eaten there and as far as I know it has had relation to 9th and Christian Sabrinas

Am I wrong? Always looked like more of a coffee shop to me
