Anyone from or know Philadelphia here?
What is there to do in a day if I flew in in the morning and had to be back at the airport at around 6?
The historic district may be worth a visit if you are a history buff. Grab a Philly Cheese Steak too. Do some pre-research on how to get around and the highlights.

This is probably the most-asked question on the Philadelphia forum, so here are the most recommended places in the downtown area (in no particular order)...
Jim's, 4th & South Streets. Convenient to the historic area, Society Hill, The Italian Market, and, well, South Street. You'll know you're close when you smell the fried onions, so just follow your nose.
Campo's, 2nd & Market Streets. Most convenient to the historic area, Penn's Landing, and Old City.
Sonny's, Market between 2nd and 3rd (same block at Campo's). Excellent quality ingredients in a very well-balanced sandwich.
