    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.

    Philadelphia: Where Can I Get the Best Cheese steak?

    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.

    Two good things to see are Independence Hall and the Franklin Institute. Skip Independence Hall if you don't give a fig for US history. I believe the Liberty Bell is still there.

    Have a soft pretzel with mustard on it from a street vendor. I miss that.

    What the security like at the Liberty Bell? Might have to lick it like in How I Met Your Mother 😛 I'm sure no one has copied that yet.
