MTU's Trip To Philadelphia

We decided to take a day trip to Philadelphia, to see what it was like.

The Sites we visited are as follows (In order):

Pat's King of Steaks
Location: Where 9th Street crosses Wharton & Passyunk Ave. Philadelphia. PA 19147
Phone Number: 215-468-1546
Verdict: AMAZING Philly Cheesesteak!

Berry Sweet (Frozen Yogurt)
Location: 901 South St. Philadelphia. PA 19147
Phone Number: N/A
Verdict: We had the Blueberry Tart, which was devine!

Eastern State Penitentiary (E.S.P)
Location: 22nd & Fairmount Ave. Philadelphia. PA 19130
Phone Number: 215-236-3300
Verdict: Very eerie, with a "what the hell is going to happen sense" also very awesome in the fact that the Penitentiary beds and structures were intact for the most part. There was a lot of interesting information, and an audio guided tour.

Pricing goes as follows:

Adults: $12
Seniors: $10
Students & Kids: $8
Members: Free
CityPASS Adults: $59
CityPASS Children: $39

We went from point E to point B then to point C, then to point D, and finally back to point E, it took us a total of 7 hours, but it was well worth it.

From what we experienced, our overall vibe and impression of Philly was very interesting.  The social classes and cultures varied greatly from one location to the other as we walked through different neighborhoods.
