Philadelphia – City of (Christmas) Lights

It’s one of the best times of the year to visit Philadelphia, and we got a chance to do so a few times over the past couple of weeks.

One of our first places to visit was the “Miracle on South 13th Street”. This is a block on South 13th Street, between Tasker and Morris, where every house goes all out to decorate their houses for Christmas. We got lucky this year, with temperatures close to 50 degrees on the night of our visit.

On another trip into the city we took in Christmas Village:

followed by the Comcast Holiday Spectacular video show:

and ended the night by watching the City Hall light show (pictured at top of post); here’s a video:

While driving home, we got to see perhaps my favorite city landmark, Boathouse Row, this time all lit up for the holidays.

As I noted, it’s a great time to visit the city, and a great way to get in the holiday spirit.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. If you’d like to see more of what Philly has to offer to celebrate the holidays, here’s a good web site.
