  • There are so many things to...

    by maryjwb Written Aug 25, 2002

    Favorite thing: There are so many things to see and do here, but if you've never been here before, you should definitely go to Independence National Park for a close-up of the Liberty Bell and other historic sights.

    Fondest memory: I love Philly at night, especially the skyline view from Grays Ferry Ave, and the lit-up Ben Franklin Bridge over the Delaware River. When I'm away I miss public transit the most. You can go almost anywhere in the city without a car.

  • eat out. Philadelphia harbors...

    by chaznam Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: eat out. Philadelphia harbors some the most enticing, and varying dining atmospheres in the world. There are good places alll over the city, but i recommend old city and china town. Stay away from the Delaware Ave. club scene in the summer-too much of a scene if you know what i'm talking about.

    Fondest memory: uhhh....nothing really fond about it

    by megadad Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: WHEN VISITING PHILLY, AS WE CALL IT.YOU SIMPLY MUST VISIT PENNS LANDING. HERE WE CONDUCT MANY CULTURAL EVENTS, SHOWS AND CONCERTS...A ROMANTIC PLACE TO WALK AT THE WATER'S EDGE...LOOK ACROSS AND WATCH THE SUNSET...OR SIT TALKING FOR HOURS UNDER A MOON-LIT NIGHT...LET'S NOT FORGET 'SOUTH STREET'...A WORLD YOU MUST EXPERIENCE!...EVERYTHING FROM QUAINT COFFEE SHOPS TO TATTOOS...AND FOR LAUGHS DON'T FORGET 'THE LAFFHOUSE'...OR IN WEST PHILLY, THERE'S 'THE LAFF ATTACK', A NEW COMEDY CLUB ON THE RISE PREMIRING NEW UP AND COMING TALENT.THE LAFF ATTACK ONLY COMES THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH,BUT THE LAFF'S LAST ALL MONTH LONG!!!

    Fondest memory: YOU REALLY WON'T BELIEVE MY FONDEST MEMORY OF PHILLY,BUT I ACTUALLY HAVE TO ADMIT IT WAS FALLING IN LOVE WITH MY FUTURE WIFE, HELEN D. WILLIAMS...I HAVE NEVER MET ANYONE LIKE HER, AND THATS NO CLICHE! SHE HAS MADE MY LIFE MORE ALIVE THAN IT'S EVER BEEN; AND I HAVE WORKED ON BROADWAY AND IN MAJOR FEATURE FILMS, RUBBED SHOULDERS WITH 'THE IN-CROWD'. AND THERE'S NOTHING THAT COMPARES WITH HELEN, SHE'S A VACATION BY HERSELF...ALWAYS THERE, NO MATTER WHAT I NEED...SHE'S THERE TO ENSURE THAT I GET IT!!! AND I GLADLY, HAPPILY AND GRATEFULLY GIVE AND APPRECIATE HER MORE THAN ANYTHING...THAT'S WHY I AM GOING TO MARRY HER. SO, IF YOU'RE IN PHILLY IN THE YEAR 2002...ABOUT JUNE OR SEPTEMBER...COME CELEBRATE THE GREATEST UNION IN THE UNIVERSE...SEE YOU THERE!.....
