Site Seeing in Philly


While in Philadelphia for the wedding, I fit in a little site seeing! I went to see where Angie lives and her awesome view from her porch! Then only a few minutes away was Valley Forge.



The meadows were beautiful!
  

Log Cabins

  

Train station

George Washington's headquarters while at Valley Forge




I touched the original handrail that George Washington touched! :)

  



I then saw the Washington  memorial chapel.



Later, I took a tour of Independence Hall.


Saw the Liberty Bell

And went shopping for the first time at Anthropologie!


Everything was so beautiful! 4 Floors of unique (and expensive) clothes and home goods. But I found a pair of jeans in the clearance room for only $9.95 (originally $98). Score!






Took a drive down to Penn Landing



Then took the Ferry over to the New Jersey side!

Saw the Benjamin Franklin bridge!




Sat for about 1.5 minutes before riding the Ferry back to Philadelphia :)


A whirlwind trip! The end.

You look so pretty in all those pictures. That's need that you've got to visit places back east. I was just thinking that I haven't seen a lot in the U.S. Someday I'll need to do some site seeing here. :)
