March is Women’s History Month and March 8th is International Women’s Day. What better way to begin the month than by honoring the most important woman in my life, my mom. I do not get to see my mom as often as I would like to, but when I do I enjoy every second of it.
She is one of the most wonderful persons I know, and therefore she deserves the most wonderful treatment. I wanted to take her somewhere new, with lots of great restaurants, places to see, great history, and lots of friendly people. So of course I chose the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia!
Philadelphia is so ideal for Washingtonians because it is so close. It has all the amenities of a big city but it is not crazy huge like New York City. We stayed at the Hilton Home 2 hotel, which was perfectly located for the sight seeing we had planned. Philly is great because every section, no matter what part of the city you are in, has an attraction nearby. Wether it is the super famous Philadelphia Museum of Art, or the historic sites like the Liberty Bell, no matter where you stay you are not far from all the great places that this city has to offer.
By far one of my favorite spots to eat is Reading Terminal Market just a few blocks from City Hall. No matter what you are craving, crepes, seafood, or of course Philly’s famous cheesesteaks, this place has it! The best part about it is that you can go just as you are. You can rock your best jeans there or chill in your sweats. It also has plenty of shops, so get ready to do some shopping as well. I cannot thank Visit Philly enough for their hospitality and for helping me honor my mom for the start of Women’s History Month. If you still have not made it to Philly, definitely put it on your “to-do” list for this year
