For me fall is the season to start wearing sweaters and watch the leaves turn beautiful colors. The weather gradually gets cooler and the days are shorter. So it was a nice change to go to Florida and temporarily return to summer.
While I was in Philadelphia I wanted to see the historic places in the city. The list included the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the Betsy Ross House. But beyond the colonial monuments, I found a really beautiful and interesting city. I took a double-decker bus tour to see the sights, and I also did lots of walking to see other places I remembered from books and movies. Here is some of what I saw during my visit to Philadelphia.
