I'll be in Philadelphia next weekend for the National Council of Teachers of English annual convention. I'm from Canada, and have never been to the eastern States before, so I'm pretty excited! Though I'll be pretty busy with mah learnins, I will have a bit of free time, and would like to make the most of my time there. I will be going by myself (never travelled alone before!). Do you have any suggestions for "Must Dos" in Philadelphia? I will be staying downtown, near City Hall, so suggestions for stuff near there or easily accessible (no rental car) would be great. I've googled, of course, but I am hoping for some more personal suggestions, and well, TQC is awesome like that. :)
ALSO AND VERY IMPORTANT: WHERE DO I GO TO GET A PHILLY CHEESE STEAK?!?!?!?!?!?!
