Philly, My Hometown

Philadelphia – my hometown! A city of brotherly love…If you’ve never been to this historic American city before, it’s a must! There are some great spots to check out.

The Philadelphia Art Museum and the new¬†Barnes Foundation are the most amazing museums in the country – of course, I’m bias! Currently the Philadelphia has an exhibition titled “Inside Out,” featuring art in unexpected places.

For this exhibition, you’ll see art in unexpected places.

The Franklin Institute is a must for science buffs in the family! Enjoy the latest exhibits such as the Terracotta Warriors, interactive 3D printing, space command and more. You can even watch an IMAX movie while you’re there!

Historically, there are wonderful things to see like the Liberty Bell Museum, where you can see the original Liberty Bell, and Betsy Ross’s house, where the first flag was sewn! You can even see a copy of the original Declaration of Independence at Independence Hall.

In particular this October, Chestnut Hill, a beautiful section outside the center of town is housing the Harry Potter Festival. Then, there’s the Terror Behind The Walls of the Eastern State Penitentiary…Sounds like a spooky fun way to spend an evening! And, there’s also Octoberfest, at the Midtown Village Fall Festival, where they’ll be brewing some very tasty treats.

My cashmere sweaters are a must for that chilly East Coast air this time of year! They come in different colors, sizes, and styles. Pair one with an antique neck piece for a look that works all day and all night! It’s all about style.
