I will be traveling to Philadelphia in mid-July and would like to get some tips on sightseeing. The problem is that I will be training M-F 9-5pm so I'll have to do my tourist thing in the evening. Any great tips? I would like to spend most of the time taking photo's if that helps.
I found the evening Segway tours - that looks fun!

I am in Philadelphia. My wife and I would like to travel from Reading Terminal Market to the zoo by public transportation. How do we best do it?
Also, we would like to get to Citizens Bank Park via public transport today. Is this possible? The web site has a lot of information about parking but nothing about getting there by public transport.

All things considered, I'd rather be in Philadelphia--and soon I will be. Please share your recommendations for used book stores, record stores, and vegetarian food (cheap to moderate, with moderate being entrees under $20).
Also, as a bonus, if you know if any yummy restaurants near the Jersey Turnpike that would allow one to avoid the nastiness of the rest stop, that would be totally awesome.

I was in Philadelphia last week and saw an odd looking "truck" parked near the on/off ramps of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. It was a dull yellow, very boxy with large flat windshields front and back. You can almost make it out in this Google Satellite map: Map
It's NOT the Ducks, I saw and ID those without problem. This looked like a highway or railroad service truck. What was it? Thanks!

I find myself with an afternoon to kill in Philadelphia. I'd like to see City Hall (the whole Rocky thing), and partake in an artery-clogging cheesesteak. Is there anything else in the City Hall vicinity that I should take a look at? What's the best cheesesteak place near City Hall (Pat's seems to be far in South Phili)? Any travel advice on transport in Philadelphia and between downtown and the Wissahickon/East Falls area? Any other general input also appreciated.
