Tour the City of Brotherly Love

Are you going to SLA 2011?  Would you like to see Philadelphia before diving into the conference?  Then join us for a city tour on Saturday, 11 June, at 6:00 p.m. as we explore the highlights of Philadelphia’s heritage and culture in the evening.

Guests will travel along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to see local landmarks such as the Franklin Institute, Logan Circle, the Rodin Museum, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (with its "Rocky" steps). While stopping at the new Comcast Center, one of the tallest “green” buildings in the country, guests will enjoy the center’s giant HD video screen and programmed high-tech video experience.

From the modern to the historic, guests will travel through the center of the city, around City Hall and along Broad Street (“The Avenue of the Arts”), past the Academy of Music and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts to Pine Street. Here, Georgian and Federal Style houses line Philadelphia’s Antique Row. Guests will travel past Pennsylvania Hospital (the nation’s first hospital) and through the surrounding 18th century neighborhood known as Society Hill.

No tour of Philadelphia is complete without seeing the "most historic square mile in the United States." A journey through the historic district will take guests to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, the Betsy Ross house, Christ Church and Elfreth's Alley.

This all-encompassing view of Philadelphia’s architecture, history, and culture will provide a brief overview of the City of Brotherly Love.  Off the beaten path, tour guides will share some favorite “best-kept secrets.”  From Independence Hall to Old City Philadelphia, become immersed in Philadelphia culture.

Cost for this bus tour is $40.00 and can be added to your registration.  The tour is sponsored by Taylor & Francis Group.  This tour sells out every year, so buy your tickets now, while they are still available. 

See you in Philadelphia!
