Some Late Suggestions?!

Sorry this is late, but I was wondering if anyone could give suggestions/help with our itinerary. My boyfriend and I will be going to Philly for my birthday this weekend. Our flight arrives Friday night 9/21 and will be staying in Philly until early evening of 9/23.

We will be staying in the Charter Club Hotel (we're college students and on a budget). On Saturday morning we are going to see the King Tut Exhibit, Mutter Exhibit, and the Penn Museum if we can fit it in.

On Sunday morning, we are going to see the liberty bell, independence hall, constitution center, franklin's grave, and possibly something else (our flight leave around 8pm).

Do you think we will be able to fit these sites in the two days? Any other suggestions for things to see? What are good and reasonable restaurants nearby? What types of transportation do you suggest? Do you suggest the hop on hop off buses or just trolleys, the train, etc.

Thank you so much for any help that you can provide!!!

I'm not familiar with the Charter Club so I am not sure where it is, a quick google search did not pop up a location. Post where it is and I'll weigh in on transport and food.

Your itinerary is ambitious, but doable, subject to what times your Tickets are for King Tut. Not going to fit much more in.

Sat night, you might want to check out Eastern State Penitentiary for Halloween, its pretty cool and near the museums you are visiting.

I do not know the "Charter Club" either - possibly could be Club Quarters? If that is the case, check out Tria for eats as well as the Continental Midtown - both are close by and reasonably priced for food. Also, what kind of cuisine do you like - that will help us make suggestions.

I agree, your schedule does seem a bit ambitious, but it can be done.
