Check out some great music at the Kimmel Center if you like symphonies and classical music. They have other music here too, if you check out their schedule. Even if you decide not to hear music here, I would visit for the very interesting architecture of this new building. (Broad St.)

South Street, below 8th. I hung out here as a kid and it has changed (there's a McDonald's and a Starbucks) but the majority of shops are still on the edge of Boehmia. It is a great strip to shop on. And the people are great eye candy! Tastykake! You've got to have one tom understand. Philly is a city of FOOD! Big portions and flavorful. If you're on a diet don't bother coming!
Take a great flash for your camera!
It was so dark in here, even with a flash the photos were hard to get! Bring a strong flash or have a good photo program to adjust it! The flowers were beautiful but how could you see with the low lighting!
One more pic from Betsy's
Can't resist. Hope I'm not boring you with these house details, but I really enjoyed Betsy Ross's little house and wanted to show you the cupboard in the kitchen with redware and other old pieces on the shelves. I found the entire museum charming. Small, intimate, and very knowledgeable guides.
UNDERGROUND MUSEUM at FRANKLIN COURT
Be curious about Benjamin Franklin & visit the UNDERGROUND MUSEUM at FRANKLIN COURT. Portraits, inventions, & exhibits about his contributions to printing, politics & science are displayed here. Very interesting :)
Also, check out a film lasting about 20 minutes on his life & accomplishment by Discovery Channel titled 'The Real Ben Franklin'.
Show Time: 10.15, 11.00, 11.45, 12.30, 1.15, 2.00, 2.45, 3.30, 4.15, 5.00. Pictured here is a room within the underground museum where one gets to call famous people in the world. I had my connection with Ralph Waldo Emerson! Cool, isn't it?!
