Philadelphia is an amazing city. I grew up in the suburbs and then lived in the city for 10 years. Obviously I love Philly and I was never at a loss for things to do when I lived there.

It can be overwhelming and expensive. We recently started recommending a way to get more bang for your buck with the Go Philadelphia Pass. It will save you time and money when you visit Philly and help you to maximize your Philadelphia sightseeing. Lets compare the different options.

We moved to Copenhagen, Denmark from Philadelphia in 2017. Since moving, we look forward to having a few trips back to Philly each year. Visiting Philadelphia is a lot different than living there. We have to cram in seeing family, reuniting with friends and finding fun things to do in Philadelphia. Heck, we’re still using vacation time, so we want to make sure we enjoy it when we travel "home". Sometimes we only have one day in Philadelphia and need to make the most of it.

Besides traveling to Philadelphia ourselves, we often have friends in Denmark ask us for travel tips to Philadelphia. Sometimes they’re going for work and sometimes for pleasure. Occasionally they’re even just doing a day trip to Philadelphia from elsewhere in the states.
