The artwork all around us was fascinating. The whimsy to be found with the giant playing pieces, the LOVE pavilion, sculpture, and fountain, and this unique airplane re-purposed into greenhouse were happy finds.
Philadelphia on a Friday and Saturday proved to be a very good walking city (easier than others I've ventured into, although many have had their particular charms). Come prepared with comfortable shoes and plenty of energy.
Then only snags to be found are getting into the city. The Schuylkill Expressway is a nightmare. It is too narrow for the major corridor that it must be, leading into and out of the city, but with the river on one side and rock faces on the other, there's not much to be done for that. Take the train if you can. If you must drive, find a central location near where you want to be and shop for the best parking option. You'll find many. Enjoy your stay.
