Happenings in Historic Philly!

The idea for this post came to me while leaving the National Constitution Center last Friday. Their current exhibit on Alexander Hamilton is simply awesome. Or, as my cousin noted,"Hamilton was more than a hit Broadway musical."




April starts the Historical District's busy season as tourists begin their visits to the great city of Philadelphia, and learn of our nation's beginnings.

Here are some highlights for the 2018 season...


The National Constitution Center
525 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

"Hamilton: The Constitutional Clashes that Shaped a Nation"


Featured until December 31st, an awe-inspiring special exhibit explores the rival ideas of Alexander Hamilton and his contemporaries.




Museum of the American Revolution
101 South Third Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

Celebrate the Museum’s One Year Anniversary April 19-22, 2018!


The Museum opened on April 19, 2017. To start off the anniversary celebrations, the Museum is offering FREE general admission on Thursday, April 19th from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Along with the exhibits, enjoy trivia, games, and food and drink specials in the Cross Keys Café. The festivities continue with various events and activities throughout the weekend.



Fete Day
Elfreth's Alley
2nd Street between Arch & Race




Saturday, June 2nd, join the residents of our nation's oldest continuously residential street for an afternoon of colonial crafts, music, food, and games.

  4. I remember taking my Girl Scouts to Philadelphia to see where our country began. It was inspiring. I love when I see some of those places come up on TV and I can say "Been there, done that."
