We stayed in a hotel in the Old City section of Philadelphia during our River Shark weekend. It was excellent to wake up Sunday morning and walk down cobble stone streets to find a good breakfast joint, instead of dealing with hotel food.
The Old City reminds me of SoHo before H&M, before Old Navy, before every square inch was scrubbed clean. Cute boutique shops sit right next to a cast iron building with peeling paint.
We didn't have too much time to check out the sights. We took some obligatory pictures of the Liberty Bell and then had to dash. We'll be back again soon. Because you've got to love a city whose default cheese is provolone.
