I went to college at University of Pennsylvania and for four years Philadelphia was my home. It definitely seemed very cold to me in the winter compared to Los Angeles but I loved living there. I made some lifetime friends and want to share some of the great things about this incredible city.  I love exploring more of the historic area of the City of Brotherly Love. Benjamin Franklin was a founding father of our country and my University (1749)!

Watch my videos from my recent visit:


*Betsy Ross House

*National Constitution Center

*Museum of the American Revolution

I also loved my tour at City Hall and the Mayor’s reception room. I spent the afternoon at Penn Museum or The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology which is an archaeology and anthropology museum that is part of the University of Pennsylvania and on Penn campus. I saw one of the recently renovated exhibits and the other exhibits will be renovated and open in 2020.

Loews Philadelphia Hotel

This historic building was the first modern skyscraper in America and is a National Historic Landmark. It was originally the Philadelphia Saving Fund Society (PSFS) building and has a bank vault in lobby. The custom designed Cartier clocks are still on every floor! Built in 1932, it had no dome or ornamentation. The steel construction with a T shaped tower allowed for more natural light and rentable space! This design allowed for the skylines of NYC and Chicago to happen. The PSFS is still on the side of the building.


Vernick Coffee Bar

James Beard award-winning Chef Greg Vernick partners with Four Seasons Hotel at Comcast Center to deliver a modern coffee bar with fantastic breakfast and lunch. The cafe is open to the public from 7am to 5pm. There is art in the lobby: Jenny Holzer’s digital art installation called, For Philadelphia, and Conrad Shawcross’s sculpture, Exploded Paradigm.
