I’ll be honest; it was hard for me to get either the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia” out of my head while exploring the city. One of my favorite things about Philadelphia was all the cherry blossoms. It gave the streets such a serene sense of Spring that made me very happy.

I spent most of my time in the Museum district and the Northern Liberties neighborhood. It was interesting to see the mix of old and new architecture, and the streets had the feel of an old European city. I was into it.

Also, the view looking from the Museum to City Hall can’t be beat.
