I'll be taking a quick mid week trip to Philly in a couple weeks and wanted to know if anyone could give a couple ideas for something to do. Basically I'll have at least one night and one day to mess around.
I'll be staying a few blocks from Morimoto's restaurant, so anything near there would be best.

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.

Be prepared to be one of many who do that. Every time I go there, it seems there are dozens of people running the steps.
For cheesesteak pleasure, I prefer Tony Luke's. It's near the stadiums, so that might be out of the way.
If you're into the museum thing, go visit the Franklin Institute. It's always got fun science exhibits, plus a great planetarium and an IMAX theater. It's very kid heavy during the day (field trips and soccer moms), but I loved it as a kid, and can even find fun there 20 years later. Take a walk through the giant heart.

And be prepared for a LOT of one-way streets. Philly's weird that way.
I'm not driving anywhere, that's for sure. Staying with a friend at a hotel since he's working in Philly that week.
Not to mention I've kinda gotten used to this Texas weather so I don't know that I'll enjoy walking in the cold much. Definitely no stair running, though I'll probably stop by and say hey to Rocky.
Should be a fun enough trip. And then a month later I get to go meet Duff from Ace of Cakes for a big fireworks thing where he'll be making an episode. But that's in like middle of nowhere Kansas and I am already well aware there ain't a thing to do there.
I need to meet some locals and share our hatred of JD Drew.
Gurnee Mills is nice, but you don't go to Gurnee, IL for the mall. You go for Great America! Actually I was pretty pissed off that I got a season pass this year and they told us that they would "make history" by opening 2 rides.
