Over the weekend I took a trip to Atlantic City, and Philadelphia to meet up with my best friend Abby and our friend Krista for a girls weekend. It was absolutely something I needed, as being here in North Carolina has made me miss "my people". Even though Abby was busy with her work, I didn't let that keep me from exploring the city.
I have a few super simple tips for exploring the city of Philadelphia. Sneakers are in fashion right now, so wear them! I made the mistake of wearing my Sperrys which I love, but they gave me the worst blisters on my ankles. I really wish I would have just sucked it up and brought my running shoes. Make sure you go out of your way to eat at Jim's Steaks on South Street. I got a recommendation from a good friend who grew up there and that's her favorite. Always believe a local. Don't be afraid to explore alone! I had so much fun by myself listening to music and walking all around landmarks.
