I've never been to Philadelphia, and will be there on Saturday for a show (around 7pm at Merriam Theater and coming from about 2 hrs away in North Jersey). I want to make a day trip out of it and am hoping you can guide me through some must-see stops we should hit. We're open to anything- museums, landmarks, parks?
Also, what is parking like? Do most places have parking lots or are there public city lots we should use and walk our way through the city? If we do have to park in a central lot, are most places within walking distance?
We obviously need to eat a cheesesteak for lunch (recommendations?). Any recommendations for dinner near the theater?
I know this is kind of broad, but I'm open to all suggestions!
