Thinking of visiting Philadelphia and the surrounding region? This is an awfully good introduction to the area and a fine resource for visitors and tourists. Is it perfect? No. Is it helpful? Yes indeed!

The Eyewitness folks have developed a series of books termed "Eyewitness Travel" that are quite nice. This volume begins with context about the city, including comments on its history and a quick survey of some special attractions.

Next, the book focuses on Philadelphia, area by area. Old City is, of course, especially interesting, containing many sights dating back to the city's earlier era, including the Betsy Ross House, Elfreth's Alley (the oldest continually inhabited street in the United States), and Independence Hall. Another delightful fixture? City Tavern, with its recipes by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson on the menu.

Other areas include Society Hall and Penn's Landing, Center City, Logan Square and the Museum District, and other areas, including outside of Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is well described here (pages 88-91), as are many other cultural landmarks.

Want an idea where to stay or eat? This work also includes information on these issues. One can certainly disagree with some of the listings (I have places to eat that I'd add), but the choices aren't unreasonable and would be helpful to potential visitors.

All in all, a good resource to take with you when visiting Philly or the surrounding area.

Our family always loves using eyewitness when traveling. It has the perfect combination of pictures and information. It also has helpful maps when trying to navigate the city.

This is a great book. Lots of detail about Philadelphia and surrounding area. Nice pictures too. Very helpful in figuring out which of the attractions you want to see, since one trip won't be enough.

I used this book's "3 day plan" to travel through Philadelphia, and we had a great time! I have used the sister book for Boston, and it was also fantastic. Everything was planned and laid out in order, so that I didn't have to worry too much about where to go or what to see. We had a great trip!

This book was several years old and useless. I'm not sure if the ad said the date it was published, but if it did I wouldn't have ordered it. Also, when I saw the initial ad, the delivery date was in a matter of days but once paid it became weeks. I sent the owner a message and it did come before we left on our trip, so that was redeeming. However, we left the book home and went to AAA
