As promised, here are a few photos of our adventures in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. A whirlwind trip, but so much fun and even a bit of relaxation crammed in between lots of walking, museum visiting, site seeing, and of course, eating.
The travel channel informed us that a trip to Philly would not be complete without a stop at Pat’s and Geno’s, famous for their Philly Cheesesteaks. Right across the street from eachother, they’re big competitors. Pat’s was better.
A nauseatingly fast elevator ride up the Rockafeller Center gave us a breathtaking view of the city at night, and a near-heart attack from Philip’s constant need to stand as close to the edge as possible.
Our first full day in Boston was spent on the Freedom Trail, followed by an evening on Hahhhvahhhd (the only true way to say Harvard) campus and dinner at a DELICIOUS burger restaurant called Bartleys. We basked in a true college Friday night experience and debated between ordering the “American Idol” or “George Bush” burger.
Fortunately the day we had a car was the day it rained cats and dogs. But a little rain did not stop us from seeing Plymouth Rock (okay..we got out of the car for like 3 minutes). Then, like the chickens we are, we decided that a much better idea was to cozy up in Panera Bread with warm soup and sandwiches.
Seriously one of the best trips ever.
