Philadelphia, the one that got away.
There are so many things to do in Philadelphia. It’s a city of icons like Ben Franklin and characters like Rocky. It’s a cradle of American history and UNESCO sites. It’s a city of modern skyscrapers juxtaposed against old buildings. It’s a city I want to get to know, but have only had a small introduction.
I first encountered Philly on a road trip with my dad. It was quick — we posed in front of the Liberty Bell, dropped by Independence Hall, and devoured a cheesesteak. This time, I made the 10-hour road trip alone. I attended BlogHouse Philly, a workshop for travel bloggers. My days were packed with learning and working, but there was some opportunity for playing too.
