What things should I be sure not to miss when visiting Philly July 6-11th? Difficulty: Attending a conference but free in the evenings, solo traveler, nervous driving in cities.

I'm visiting Philadelphia for a week-long conference this Sunday-Friday, July 6-11th. I'll have the evenings free after 5, and I'd love suggestions for fun and cheap things to do near the University of Pennsylvania. I love taking exploratory walks, cool libraries, cheap and healthy eats, and fun stuff for an introvert traveling alone in a city that I haven't thought of. I have never been to Philly before, and I'm interested in everything from the obvious cheese steaks, to photos doing the Rocky pose on the famous steps, to local favorites. Any 3-5 mile routes to jog that would be safe for a solo lady near the area would be appreciated, too.
I prefer not to drive too much, since I'm a little nervous driving in unfamiliar cities by myself.
I really appreciate any recommendations about Philly and any special events the week of July 6-11th! Thanks, guys!
