Exploring Philly with Travel Editor for the Huffington Post
Sun worshipper / Foodie
My travel cravings are for beaches and food. My earliest travel memory is of Thanksgiving in Paris when I was in 3rd grade. We sat on the steps of Sacre Coeur in our puffy 80s coats.
I would spend my perfect day in Philadelphia because it's a wonderful walking city, which is one of the easiest ways to see new places. My most memorable moment here was Live 8 in 2005. I was singing the theme song from "Fresh Prince" with Will Smith and thousands of other people at the top of my lungs in the middle of the Ben Franklin Parkway. The most romantic thing to do here is understand and enjoy the enormous history. I would stay at 1715 Rittenhouse when visiting Philadelphia because it's a boutique hotel on a quaint street in the heart of Center City.
The activities that can't be missed
1. Barnes Foundation—for obvious reasons.
3. The incredible BYO scene at restaurants here. Take advantage of the delicious meals you can have with your own wine.
