Going to Philadelphia in March. Tips for the city?

Staying at the Hyatt at Penn's Landing. Where are some interesting places to go?

Would like a good place to go out and have some drinks...

A nice place to grab breakfast...

A place to have a nice dinner. Not anything super omega expensive but nice.

Also any other interesting stuff worth checking out. Because it is weird and interesting looking we may hit up the Mutter Museum...a medical science museum.

Heard the Liberty Bell is so so as an attraction. Any better places to catch Rev war history?

Thanks in advance.

That's pretty cool. I had no idea something like that existed.

That entire park is pretty cool.

If you take a cab over to old city that is where you will find most of of the historic attractions and some good resturaunt/bars. The Rittenhouse square area has some great restaurants as well.

Some recommendations :

Franklin mortgage and investment company - - Speak easy type bar in Rittenhouse square.

Fogo De Chao- Brazilian steak house chain amazing!

Steven starr is a big name for resturaunts in philly. Google anything by him and they are usually top notch.

Yeah, anything Steven Starr or Jose garces. I don't live in Philly so a real Philly guy can point you somewhere better. Best I've had was morimoto, even though it's a little weirdly trendy on the inside. Was started by the original iron chef.

Yeah, it's sort of like this shady little small town USA town park in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the country (albeit in the old part of town).

Neither had I. I've been to Philly enough times that I don't remember the reason I was down in the old part of town, but I know we weren't looking for this place and boy we just wandered around it for a long time, it was endlessly fascinating, if you like history and what not. I choked up when I read the line on the monument.
