Hello,

I will be spending a day in Philadelphia tomorrow with a friend doing sightseeing. What is the best way to explore the city?
Googling on the net gave me the following choices
1) Museum of Art
2) Penns Landing
3) Franklin square
4) Liberty Bell

Is this a reasonable to estimate in 1 day?
I have a car but not sure about the parking charges and traffic scenario there. Is the best idea parking somewhere in the city and taking public transport?

Any suggestions appreciated and welcome.
thanks!

Wish I had seen this earlier... I walked around Center City for a full day once and made it into a Set on my Flickr... if you were in Center City there's TONS of places to venture around and snap nice shots but other than that South St. is great to so if you head back sometime wander those parts.

Hey, thanks for the advice.

I was able to go only to Penns Landing and the Museum of Art!! It was a snowy day so couldnt do much walking around.

I'll be going again in a few weeks, so thanks for the tip.
