    Default vacationing to Philadelphia and Atlantic city

    We are going to Atlantic city and Philadelphia second week of Nov. Any suggestions for local dining or attractions? Where to get discount coupons for attractions in these cities? We like to see the major stuff but also enjoy off the beaten path excursians. Any places to avoid?
    Thanks

    Whenever we go to Philly, we always head to South Street (near the waterfront). Back when I was eating meat, we would always go to Jims Steaks on South street...best steak sandwiches anywhere...1000 x better than Pat's or Geno's!!!!! south street also has neat little shops and a funky kind of beat!

    Thanks, thats exactly the kind of advice I am looking for. It is so hard to find out about anything that not a major attraction. I'll let you how we liked it when we get back.

    my kids swear by Geno's LOL !

    AC has teh casinos some shops you can walk the boards depending on the weather - i guess they have some concerts and shows etc you have to check that out .

    i dont really think of AC as a sight seeing vacation spot myself for anything but shows and casinos unless its beach weather - but thats just me lol

    I have never really made the time to explore Philly. I do have some ideas for next year as we are close enough for a day trip or weekend get away. I love the history of the place and have recently watched A Taste of History (filmed in the bake house of Rittenhouse *see below*).


    Welcome to Historic Philadelphia There is Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, home of the traitor - Betsy Ross. She was a very interesting woman.

    Historic RittenhouseTown This was the first paper mill in America and they have reopened some of the buildings as a living history museum.

    Philadelphia - Official Visitor Site - visitphilly.com has a list of top attractions that are local to Philly. Longwood Gardens are beautiful.

    Have a wonderful time searching for things to do.
