Philly 2009: 36 hours in the city

Tracing the Tribe knows its readers will be coming to Philly for the conference, and so does the New York Times, which just published a neat article on places to visit in the city of brotherly love.

Have you registered for the Conference yet? Click here for all details.

The paper's series of "36 Hours In ...." provides interesting highlights for visitors who don't have a lot of spare time. Obviously, you don't have to cram all of these into one 36-hour block. If you're arriving early or staying after the conference, you might want to consider visiting some of the recommendations.

The list, organized for a weekend jaunt - from Friday afternoon through Sunday - includes Independence Hall, City Hall with a great observation tower, restaurants (Chinese-Peruvian Chifa, Israeli Zahav, breakfast at Sabrina's Cafe), an arty bowling alley (North Bowl), an outdoor art center (Magic Garden), the Ninth Street Italian Market (don't forget the pizza!), the science-related Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a bike ride in the park.

  1. I was in Philadelphia a couple weeks ago and can HIGHLY recommend tangerine on Market Street for a special dinner (http://www.tangerinerestaurant.com/). The food was extraordinary.
