Earlier this month, I spent a weekend in Philadelphia. I had never been there before, and it was a visit that I looked forward to.

As I planned for the trip, I mentioned to friends that I was going, and asked what they thought I should see and do while I was there. There were two recurring themes: the Liberty Bell, and the movie Rocky.

I was able to see the Liberty Bell, the museum steps that Rocky ran during his workouts, and much more. I’ll be posting about some of the highlights of my Philadelphia trip over the next few weeks. I think you’ll see why the city’s current tourism campaign, “Philly’s more fun when you sleep over” is accurate.

Tomorrow: The Liberty Bell
