I’ve lived in Philly for over a year now and my parents wanted to come and see what I’ve been upto since moving out here. Â Here is a summary of our adventures.
Grabbing Philly Cheesesteaks
The 1st thing everyone wants to do upon arriving to the great city of Philadelphia is to grab a legit Philly Cheesesteak. They were so excited to get a cheesesteak that while I was giving them a tour of my room they discovered my cheesesteak hat and almost consumed it. Eventually we headed over to Tony Lukes, home ofÂ my favorite cheesesteak from the triple bypass challenge I did with David.
Seeing The Philly Sites
ThroughoutÂ my parents trip we hit a lot of the popular Philly sites. Â Some of the highlights we saw were:
- Seeing the Liberty Bell, they didn’t try to lick it
- Rocky statue and steps
- Board Game Art Park & LOVE Park
- Philadelphia Mint
- Reading Terminal
Mothers Day 2013
It was also great to be able to have my mom here for mothers day. Definitely a cherry on top of the whole trip.
Chocolate Making At Zwahlen’s Store
We Becks love Â to make chocolates and when presented with the opportunity to take a tour and talk with some realÂ chocolatiers we took the opportunity. We spent a few hours learning how Zwahlen’s makes their candy apples and chocolates. It was a great time!
Touring Benjamin Franklin Institute
We spent a whole day at the Benjamin Franklin Institute. I hadn’t been there yet and enjoyed trying all of the toys. I had fun taking videos of my parents playing on the different exhibits. You can check out the videos here.Â
Who’s next to visit Philly?
Hope to give more friends and family tours around my beautiful city.
