    Things to see in Philly?

    I'm getting ready to head up to Philadelphia this afternoon. Never really been downtown to see the Tourist stuff that is there, as I've only been there for games and what not.

    So far I've got Independence Hall, Liberty Bell and Philadelphia Museum of Art (Rocky Statue) as the places to go.

    Any others that you guys can think of?

    Thanks!

    Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a really neat Revolutionary War memorial, complete with an enternal flame. That whole area is really neat if you are into historical buildings.

    Pat's or Geno's. Or better yet try both and cast your vote in the ongoing debate of which has the better cheesesteak. I am partial to Geno's.

    Also the Constiution Center.

    If the Phillies are in town, you could go to the fights in the outfield.
