Or explore Chinatown, the Independence Seaport Museum or Antique Row.

This is a great way to see all the major tourist spots in the city museums, historical spots, etc.. The guides are entertaining and they're nice too. One of the guides went around wiping off people's seats when it started to rain.

We had a short time to visit Philadelphia, so the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour was the best way to see a lot of things in short time. Our hostess was extremely knowledgable in the history of Philly and narrated our entire ride. I recommend using this tour if you are not well acquainted with the city, and if you want to save yourself a lot of walking!

Fantastic stories by Isaac and it is incredible that the bus goes down those super narrow streets. We used the stop At South Street to eat breakfast, then used another bus to stop at the River-port Museum and take the ferry to New Jersey. Big Bus is an absolutely fabulous trip, don't miss it.
