When you go to Washington DC make sure you map out everything you want to go to, especially if you’re only visiting for the day. There’s a lot of good restaurants surrounding the National Mall but I would recommend going to Union Market for more choice.
If you are going to Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell and tour the Independence Hall make sure you get there early. Not 8 or 9 am early, afternoon is fine but by 3pm rolls in you wouldn’t be able to get tickets anymore.
UPDATE: Pat’s King of Steaks by the way doesn’t take card. CASH ONLY.
My mother hasn’t been to Philly so we went downtown and showed her some things. I have a few more pictures but I’ll be uploading them in another time.
