Personal - Short East Coast trip

I shall be on the East Coast this weekend, hitting New Jersey on Sunday and Philadelphia on Monday. I've never been to Philly, and I understand they have a transit system that is very similar to the one in Boston, and that's something I'm quite interested in experiencing. It's a very short trip, so I do hope to see as much as possible in the free time I have.

Any suggestions on something I must see? I arrive in Newark at 6pm Saturday and depart from Philly at 6am Tuesday.

Also, you may have noticed I haven't been posting as frequently as usual this past couple of weeks. I know, it's been hard. I have 8 or so posts partially written but I keep not having time to finish them off. Not good, not good. Don't even ask me the last time I vacuumed, if you think my blogging has been slow, imagine how I've prioritized less pleasant activities...


  1. The country kinda started right here, I'd suggest Philadelphia city hall tour if you have the time. Of course there is all that other liberty stuff and the U.S. Mint and a ton of museums. But for the personal mode of transportation with a vintage touch visit Via bicycle, link to blog below.

    I hear you on the vacuuming. And don't even mention the dusting... ;)

    Enjoy your stay. =)

  2. Forgot to mention a pedestrian crossing of the Delaware River on the Ben Franklin bridge and a visit to the Water Works would be like infrastructure nirvana.
