Walking Philadelphia: 30 Walking Tours Exploring Art, Architecture, History, and Little-Known Gems
Grab your walking shoes and become an urban adventurer. Natalie Pompilio guides you through 30 unique walking tours in this comprehensive guidebook. Go beyond the obvious with self-guided tours that showcase famed fare (such as cheesesteaks, pretzels, and beer that make Philadelphia a foodies’ paradise), as well as vintage boutiques, high-end shopping destinations, and one-of-a-kind local goods. Discover Philadelphia’s many “Firsts”―the first zoo, first library system, and first hospital―plus dozens of historic sites you learned about in school. Explore a Museum District that’s second to none, an all-encompassing park system, America’s Most Historic Square Mile, and much more.
Walking Philadelphia is the only guide to the city that makes you feel like you’re being led by your smartest, closest, funniest friend. The tours not only include all the important historic facts and figures, but Natalie also shares behind-the-scenes stories and tidbits that you’ll later rush to tell others. Plus, Tricia Pompilio’s photography brings these walking tours to life. Walking Philadelphia is recommended for locals, as well as tourists, promising something for everyone.
