PHILADELPHIA is a beautiful city with a lot of charm. It has some great colleges including Temple and The University of the Arts so there are tons of fashionable students all over the place.
We went in June and they were having their annual Fine Art Show in Rittenhouse Square in Center City, which was a nice free activity to enjoy. On day two we took advantage of the ‘pay as you wish’ museums. And day three was filled with delicious cheap food and window shopping. We stayed with family, but check out some hostels on yelp if you’re not as lucky.
