Philly, like all cities, is unique as are all of its more than 40 neighborhoods. Savor the flavors.
Top places: National Constitution Center, Carpenter Sq., Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Elfreth's Alley, First Friday Arts, Museums, Orchestra, Theater, Ballet, Opera, many outstanding restaurants (ask if byo) and make dinner reservations, 9th St. Italian Market, Reading Terminal Market, Philly cheesesteak at Jim's, Pat's, or Geno's. Everyone stops at The Rocky statue to take their picture in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and then run up the steps like the champ himself. The newest museum, The Barnes, has a very valuable art collection and is well worth the visit but requires reservations.
Drive, at night, along the West side of our Schuylkill River to see the boathouses all lit....now that is a memorable sight.
Drive out to Amish country in Lancaster County or visit the outlets in Reading, visit Longwood Gardens (spectacular).
There are just so many places and things to do in Philadelphia. Your host, Roberta, will help you should you need it. And she might even "let you in on" her favorite Portuguese, Polish, or Columbian restaurants.

Общение с гостями
Guests can call, text , email or see me flitting around in the morning or evening. Check in time is somewhat flexible, but we must establish the check in time beforehand as I have a full time business and frequently have evening plans. Have a little glass of Lillet and a casual chat on arrival. When the opportunity arises, I may invite the guest to a party or function.
