Philly on A Budget
We had a super Saturday in Philadelphia. We spent exactly $104.00 including tolls, food and parking- but not including gas. Anyways for our lil family of four that is a steal of a deal. Wanna know what fun we had-here you are!
1) Checked out Independance Hall and other historical sites such as Liberty Bell and Ben Franklin's printing press. All FREE!! I love free tours!
2) Had Cheesteaks from one of those sidewalk stands. Ate on some pretty benches in the historical sections.
3) Went to Smith Park-the kids loved it! It's free, with awesome playgrounds, a covered bridge slide with burlap sacks you sit on. Also there is a mansion there filled with toys. The basment is a little car track for the kiddies- they had a blast!!
4) Went to Reading Terminal Market. This was fun. It's like a giant inside farmers market, with all sorts of vendors. It was fun, very much like the Quakertown Market and Allentown Farmers Market. Ate some yummy pulled pork sandwhiches and ice cream.
