The Streets of Philadelphia

Travelling to Philly for two days late July for college tours for my girlfriend's son. Staying two blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
  • What else do you recommend we see?
  • Where should we get cheesesteaks from?
Bonus points for tips about visiting Hershey Park (we're visiting for one day) and what is best to do there. Saw older posts, but most are 7+ years old. Thanks in advance for your tips/help!

What's New In Philadelphia?

Travelling to Philadelphia in mid August for a break - I'm a regular visitor but I haven't been in 3 years - what's new in town that I can't miss? I like fine dining, gay bars, unusual museums, vintage or discount menswear, and science/engineering sights/tours. Assume I've done all the major attractions like the Mutter and Eastern State. I have no interest in Founding Fathers stuff. [more inside]

Road trip stop along I-84, I-81, Scranton - ish area, en route to DC

Part of an upcoming weekend trip will involve us leaving the Poconos area in PA off 84 (around Lake Wallenpaupack, PA) in the evening, stopping overnight somewhere nearby-ish. The direction we eventually want to head generally speaking is making our way west, then south on 81, towards MD/DC. Suggestions where to stop and stay along, perhaps in the Scranton + Wilkes barre area? [more inside]

Hindu temple in the Poconos with painted steps

Around 1986, my family visited a Hindu temple or similar religious facility in the Poconos area of Pennsylvania. I remember that the path from the parking lot up the hill to the building was a stairway of huge stone steps, each of which was painted with a different design. Does this temple still exist? Where is it? Online photos of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, the Jain temple Siddhachalam, and Sringeri Sadhana Center don't look like what I remember.

Friday at Jersey Shore (No Swimming/Sun Bathing)?

I want to hit the Jersey Shore tomorrow with Spanish tourists eager to explore that culture. Where's an extra evocative/photogenic old-timey spot to spend the day walking around, eating, and generally enjoying one single afternoon? Sunbathing/swimming not possible, she's on meds and must avoid. So...just walking (with hat and sunscreen). Extra points for tips on driving (from Manhat) and parking on a summer Friday.
