“I am thrilled to say that i just got a summer nanny job due to your website-i am so grateful!!”
Philly has a variety of tours to show your nanny the brightest and most popular sights in the City of Brotherly Love. Known as being the birthplace of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, it is overflowing with history. One of the most popular tours is the Philadelphia City Tour where trolleys let you hop on and off at 18 different stops. Another popular way to see the sights is by way of carriage. Or perhaps your nanny might enjoy the seeing Philadelphia from the water while scoffing down a scrumptious meal and listening to pleasant entertainment on a Philadelphia Dinner or Lunch Cruise. American history can be found at Independence National Historical Park, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Don’t forget that Philadelphia offers a wealth of art and culture, performing arts companies, distinctive architecture, a walk-able downtown, continuous shopping, and impressive restaurants.
Does your nanny's taste runs to unusual items? Have her head to South Street between 2nd and 8th. It is not something you expect to come upon in Philadelphia but it is in a class by itself. It offers distinctive hats, gently used clothing and books, crafts supplies, old furniture and decorative items for your home, jewelry and stationary/greeting cards. On the quirky side there are tattoos parlors and shops that also offer piercing. Your nanny might want to check out store named Zipperhead if interested in punk clothing and music. Buyers there are just as assorted and interesting as the stores themselves with a guarantee that everyone will fine something there to buy there as it ranges from the ordinary to the highly unusual. Most shops on South Street are in a moderate price range and a great place to find a bargain. Your nanny will also find numerous amounts of places to eat. It offers Greek food, Chinese, American, Jamaican, as well as the all-desired pizza! South Street's buildings are also full of character with some having stained glass walls.
Your nanny has a night off and is looking for a good, but inexpensive, restaurant. There are usually cheap restaurants everywhere but ones with great food are not so abundant. Send her to these and she will get the best of both worlds. There is the Silk City American Diner on Spring Garden Street with a classic American eating that goes beyond basic milk shakes and meat loaf. Phoebe’s Bar-B-Q on South St serves up Texas-sized portions! If she wants to experience good beer and a hearty bar room fare then the Standard Tap on N 2nd St would be the spot to try! Finally, Geno’s Steaks on S. Ninth St – they say “it’s where the tourists, the inebriated and the sleepless gather for griddle-fried gems.” How can you beat that!
