Today we picked up our second rental car in Vienna, Virginia, and drove to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To get there, we had to drive over many many bridges, and into New Jersey. Here’s a picture of Philadelphia’s skyline. It looks pretty cool.
this was really funny. The building on the right is the
Children’s Dental Associates, and right next door is an ice
cream shop. I wonder if the kiddos get their ice cream before
or after they go to the dentist.
Then we saw Independence Hall. It had already closed for the day, but we’ll get to go in tomorrow. In case you don’t know, Independence Hall was once home to the Liberty Bell, and it’s where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Across the street from Independence Hall was also the first “white house”. It wasn’t white, but it was where the President and his family lived before the actual White House was built.
We asked a horse carriage driver for a good place to find a Philly steak and cheese sandwich. He recommended Pete’s Pizza Joint. Pete’s was amazing. The food was so good. The building was a bit small, but Pete was very welcoming. Here’s some of the menu. Pete was a super nice guy, and we enjoyed talking with him. The Phillys were so good that we just might have to come back for more!
Here’s what the building looks like from the outside.
