Revolutionary Germantown Festival (Philadelphia)
Mar 31, 2013 - As far as Philadelphia is concerned, everyone knows it is hard to stay away from historical sites, stories and places that inspire and motivate visitors and guests and when one is in Germantown, this very same fact is VERY real. Germantown is known as one of the most historically-rich places in the country, not just Philadelphia, therefore, it makes sense that they have the Revolutionary Germantown Festival on a daily basis. This day-long historical affair has been known throughout the year to draw tens of thousands of visitors and event-goers from all over the country and the rest of the world too.
What makes this festival different from other food and drink related events in Philadelphia is the reenactment of the Battle of Germantown, which changed the town forever. It reenacts the tough and hard battle fought in Philadelphia that helped shape the country so, there is loads for the kids to learn here as well.
It would be best if guests had their own Philadelphia charter bus rental service if visiting in a large group with family and friends; nevertheless, those who are without such transportation can make use of the escorted charter buses provided by the event organizers or simply make use of the walking tours where the guides will show you where and what happened on that fateful day.
The one thing that you would have to expect is...crowd...yes, lots of people, limited parking spaces but loads of fun learning about things you never thought you would have a hands-on learning experience about. What is strongly recommended for visitors who are geared for some fun is the early American toys at Upsala.
Upsala is a mansion built on Mount Airy back in 1798 by a John Johnson who is also the builder of another historically-significant house nearby, the John Johnson House. The man was a passionate resident of Germantown despite his upbringing as an Quaker. The house is also an encampment site for the Continental Army during the war, hence, its significant role during the festival.
With a festival like this, where lives are lost and wars are won, the visit would completely miss the point if one does not pay respect to the soldiers who were sacrificed during the fight and frankly speaking, it is not as somber as one would have thought. The sites to visit to pay respect to the soldiers would be at Concord School and Upper Burying Ground.
Anyhow, the highlight of the festival is always the famous reenactment of the way which starts sharp at noon and ends three hours later. Visitors often end up feeling encouraged, motivated, touched and had a lot of fun at the same time.
Go Vertical (Philadelphia)
Jan 31, 2013 - When traveling with kids, things can get a little tough when they get restless. One moment they are bouncing off walls, the very next moment, they are wailing with sleepiness. You are going to doubtlessly fight off their moodiness and restlessness but if you are looking for something fun to do with the kids in Philadelphia, consider bringing them to Go Vertical, a rock-climbing-cum-gym facility in Philadelphia.
A Fun-Filled Day Out In Philly
Oct 29, 2012 - It doesn't always have to do with night outs, pubs, clubs and shopping whenever it comes down to making the most out your time here in Philadelphia. The secret to creating those magical moments when traveling out here in Philly, regardless of whether you are using Philadelphia party bus rental services or just hopping on and off the public transportation, is to get down and dirty like the locals. You want to get into what really makes the locals tick and what they like to do when they are off work.
You can find lots of the un-touristy things to do on South Street where things are known and said to be on the quaint side. Pay special attention to the stuff on sale whenever you walk past those shops because some of the items are really quite unusual (not to be found anywhere else in the country) and make fantastic souvenirs for those back home. The main reason for the availability of these shops and outlets is because many Asian, Italian, Irish and Mexican people call this corner of Philadelphia home. In combination with the local taste of things, some things found here are funky and have their own feel. For example, you would have Irish pubs sitting ride beside a Chinese-inspired art gallery and then a Philippines furniture shop could be right around the corner while your senses are being teased by scents of Italian food right in front of you.
A place like Isaish Zagar's Magic Gardens is a must if you you like quaint objects. There are wheels collections for sale as well as ceramic bottles and other collection like decorative items and bottles. It is like a very unique collections museum and is most definitely worth a quick stop.
