    Unlike Any Other


    Where else can you stay in the former home of a Colonial patriot? The home of Robert Morris is now a boutique hotel, with 15 rooms and suites, often tapped for wedding parties, but we stayed there while a relative was in a nearby hospital. Each room is different, colonial,furnishings, b&b style, but interesting. Nice breakfast, also complimentary afternoon tea and wine, served in the drawing room. Across the courtyard, a stylish white cloth restaurant called m. Wifi included, desk is attended 24/7.

    Unique Quality: Atmosphere of centuries old home but modern conveniences.

    Directions: Near the historic and excellent Walnut Street Theatre, 2 blocks from Independence Hall, and 3 hospitals..Jefferson, Wills Eye, and Pennsylvania. If you come in by train or plane, take the Septa local to Reading Terminal, and a short cab ride .

What about K street, is that a really bad area?

by Tinahays

I have to go to K street to see a client. I was wondering if that is a really bad area?

I haven't lived in Phila. for awhile, but I don't think that is a particularly dangerous area. Hopefully, someone else will be more in the know than I am.

Good place to check out a neighborhood

by PR-7

Google Earth{R}

Enter the address, then see if you can do a "ground level" tour of the area.

When I did so for a random area of K Street, I saw a lot of duplex homes (none burned out), cars parked on streets (none seemed to be abandoned), and typical "working class" type buildings. Nothing *I* would be afraid of, but I'm a little more daring than a lot of people. Not necessarily a place I'd want to live in, but I didn't see anything that would scare about going there for a few hours.

Not too bad. It's only a one gun neighborhood, not two.

Seriously. Do not go alone. Strangers have "victim" written all over them
and the bad guys will pickup on it right away.

If you have the address you can put it into goggle maps and get a 'street view" of the property. It will give you an idea if the block is a war zone or not.

Note: if you have out of state tags on your car you can bet you will be stopped and searched by the police looking for drug buyers.

Oh. If your not driving yourself ( flying, train, etc. ) There is a car service I know of that will send a burly driver to pick you up and take you to your meeting. They can wait or come back fo you. Probably the safest way to go.

Travel Tips for Philadelphia

City Pass

by IMthat1girl000

We purchased a City Pass at the Franklin Institute. It was cheaper way to visit the museums. You get a book of tickets for 6 museums around Philly. We had to pay full price for the King Tut exhibit so the cashier just gave us a book for free to even it out. Score!

Urban yet Country-like

by matt1168

The best thing about Philly is that although it is very urban, it is not like New York where it is mile after mile after mile of concrete and steel. Philadelphia does have a lot of concrete and steel, but there are also more country-like areas you wont find in a city like New York.

Another typical street

by el_ruso

As you walk NW towards the City Hall, the Federal style townhouses are mixed with the newer Belle Epoque architecture, providing for a nice transition. This city is actually excellent to study architecture through history.

History, history, history

by acemj

Here I am hanging out with my nephew in Independence National Historic Park in Center City. Besides Independence Hall and all of the historical sights here, it's also a great place to find some peace and a nice spot of grass to relax on.
Check out for more information.

Christ Church Cemetery

by yooperprof

Ben Franklin is buried here.

Did I mention that BF and I are relatives? His mother, Abiah Folger from Nantucket, was the sister of Peter Folger, one of my direct ancestors. I think that we're first cousins 14 times removed!

The cemetery is at the corner of 5th and Arch Streets. There's a small separate admittance fee.
