Philadelphia – Washington Square

Washington Square in Philadelphia is free to visit and is part of Independence Hall. We visited all of Independence Hall but I’m breaking it up in to different posts because it’s so much! Washington Square has a tribute to those who died in the revolutionary war with an unmarked grave and a statue of George Washington. Hence the name Washington Square. Philadelphia is steeped in so much history. We honestly have learned so much just by touring Philly.
When we walked up to the statue there was a man standing there and asked us if we knew about the tribute. He went on to explain it to us. It was very interesting. He said his name was John and he was a professor at Penn State and in his free time sits in the park and tells people the history of Philadelphia. We don’t know if that’s true but it was awesome to learn about the area. We hope you enjoy the photos below and let us know if you have visited Philadelphia and what were your favorite places to go? As always stay classy and thanks for stopping by.

Philadelphia – Geno’s Steaks

When visiting Philadelphia you have to go to Geno’s. It is so delicious. If you want to sound like you’re from South Philly, order a “whiz with” which is a cheesesteak with cheese wiz and onions. You will not be sorry. After you eat make sure you look at the wall of police badges. We found one from Georgia, I’m sure you will find your state. With so many cheesesteak places to choose from its really hard to pick just one, but we asked around and everybody said Geno’s.

Hershey World

We went to Hershey’s Chocolate World in Hershey, PA. Saying that this place is awesome is an understatement. There is tons to do here and the best part is some of it is free. We are always down to go somewhere with candy and free stuff.

You know it’s going to be a good time when you arrive and there are giant candy bar characters greeting you from the top of the building.

The best part of Hershey’s Chocolate World is that admission and parking ( less than 3 hours) and some attractions are free! We took the Hershey Chocolate Tour which is free and you get a sample of candy at the end. This is a riding tour. You ride in a cart shaped like a Hershey Kiss. The tour is really informative and enjoyable. I wouldn’t suggest doing this tour if you get motion sickness easily because there are a lot of turns and you have to walk to the cart on a moving floor.

These cows sing the song that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day!

After we took the tour we were really hungry. There is a cafe with sweets, ice cream, and savory foods. We got a baked potato, macaroni and cheese, and the best hot chocolate we have ever had.

Hershey kisses are our favorite. We got cookies and cream, almond, and plain. There is a kiss machine where you can make your own bag. Oh yeah!

There is so much more to do here but we only had a couple of hours because we were just passing through. On their website you can plan your visit before you go and buy tickets to the attractions. If you are close to Hershey, PA you definitely have to check out Hershey World. Stay Classy and Thanks for stopping by!
