We will be making the trek to your fair city, in a couple weeks, for a business/vacation trip.
The family, vacation...me meetings..with a couple days of downtime.

We have marked down to do all of the obvious, and plan to soak up the history the city. Fortunately my teenage daughters have some appreciation for history and handle my long tours great.

I looking info/advice on any can't miss things to see or restaurants to hit....or places to stay the hell away from.

I posted here when we went to Boston and came away with some great advice.

First thing to do:
Keep your teenage daughters away from Philadelphia.
You don't know where it's been.

My cousin moved a broad to Philly from DC. Spent all of his money on the rental truck. He gets there and finds out she's married. She played him to get her stuff there. So he's sleeping on a bench and wakes up to some guy stuffing his hands in his pockets. He yells W T F and the guy starts screaming about rats. He jumps up to shake the rats off. Except there wasn't any rats. The guy was just copping a feel.

Not a bad list. Would add the following: Philadelphia Art Museum, Mutters Museum, XfinityLive (bars and restaurant complex down next to the stadiums) Reading Terminal Market, the Italian Market in South Philly, John's Roast Pork at Front & Snyder for cheesesteaks (only open in the mornings and daytime since they primarily serve people working down at the docks and construction workers but sooo good.) Avoid Pat's and Genos steaks. Dont bother with South Street...can get a bit crazy with the teenagers in the summer time. Feel free to ask more.

Northern Liberties and Fishtown are pretty gentrified at this point. Also...forgot to add to check out Eastern State Penitentiary which is by the art museum located at 20th & Fairmount (North of spring garden st) which housed Al Capone at one point and is now a national historical landmark. They have hourly tours of the former prison which are pretty cool.

I'd add Ben Franklin's house and Monk's cafe before you run.
