Philadelphia city walking tour

Last year I had my first visit to Philadelphia, to see the UPenn campus and tour the city a bit after a conference in NYC and a stop at the Princeton University campus. I did plenty of walking around Philadelphia during that visit, roaming around downtown and trying to see as much as I can during that limited time. Philadelphia was surprisingly pleasant, definitely nothing like what I expected with some of the stereotypes associated with the city.

 

To share with you some of the city vibe, here is a photo summary of my walking tour around the city.
