Weekend Adventures: Philadelphia

On Friday morning, I took off for the weekend… literally.  I fly out to Philadelphia, PA to visit one of my best friends, Stacie, and her husband Walker.  They moved to Pennsylvania last summer after getting married.  It was so fun to see my friends’ new home, hang out with them for the weekend, and see a city I’ve never seen before.

  • On Friday night we went to a haunted house at the old Eastern State Penitentiary, which hosted Terror Behind the Walls for the Halloween season.  I’ve never been to a haunted house before and this was a series of 6.  I survived!  And I had a lot of fun laughing at myself every time I screamed.
  • Saturday we toured The Mütter Museum, a medical museum full of oddities which was interesting, educational, and so appropriate for my current AHS: Freak Show obsession.  We saw pieces of Albert Einstein’s brain!
  • We also went to Reading Terminal Market, where I probably could’ve stayed and eaten for the rest of my life, and did a drive by of Independence Hall since we didn’t want to deal with Liberty Bell lines.

Here are my other touristy moments:

[3] Reppin’ House Baratheon outside of the Philadelphia Art Museum [4] And here’s Rocky Balboa! [5] Sock bun across the USA– here I am in front of the Philadelphia skyline from the top of the museum steps. [6] Beautiful weather and beautiful views behind the museum overlooking the boathouse featuring in the Always Sunny opening. [7] Philadelphia City Hall topped with William Penn. [8] Giant game pieces!  The Monopoly iron was always my favorite. [9] From the courtyard at Philadelphia City Hall.
