Part 1: What’s Your Philly Story?

College is an adventure – an adventure about the discovery, creation, and development of your story! Campus Philly is starting a new series called “What’s Your Philly Story?” where we share students’ stories of what brought them to Philly, why they love it here, and how they’re making the most of this awesome city.

We’ve put together a crawl through the historic Old City District below, hitting all the must-see sites representing Philly’s history you might have missed on your field trips, the must-eat treats you HAVE to try, and the BEST way to catch the city’s skyline views – on the Spirit of Philadelphia, a cruise that leaves from Penn’s Landing year-round.
