A Fantastic Philly Weekend
When your best friends from childhood come to visit for a long weekend, you do all the tourist things, eat all the food and drink all the beer. My best friends Hailey, Elizabeth and Melissa came to visit me in Philly this past weekend and it couldn’t have been a better weekend. The weather was PERFECT and I was able to show them literally almost every Philly neighborhood. I didn’t think we would fit as much in but we did a lot!
They all got here Thursday night and on Friday morning we started our adventures in Rittenhouse Square.
After Rittenhouse Square, we headed down to Reading Terminal Market for a delicious lunch and 4th Street Famous Cookies (so damn good).
After a large lunch, we walked up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to run up the Rocky Stairs lay in the sun at the top of the Rocky Steps before I made them all take my 4:30 spin class.
After a quick recharge in the sun, we made our way to Body Cycle Studio for my class! You know true friends when they take your cycle class on vacation…
Caught in action...
On Friday night we started at Independence Beer Garden (Hallelujah so happy it’s back open!!), danced at Fado and ended Ubering to Big Ass Slices for some Big Ass Slices of pizza. No pics here because pizza was our priority. Let’s just say my early Saturday morning at work was quite a challenge.
On Saturday when I got off of work, we roamed around the Italian Market for some Philly Cheesesteaks from Geno’s and some cannolis. A true Philly meal. After that we head over to Old City, Society Hill and Race Street Pier. We were totally exhausted after Saturday so we head back to my neighborhood to finish off the night with margaritas and Mexican food at a cute little place near my apartment.
On Sunday we were citied out so we went on a little hike through the Wissahickon Trail…
It was a good ass weekend!! I already miss my girls and I’m so happy they could all make it up to visit :)
