Right now as I write this (Thursday morning) I hear the Cat in the Hat singing in my head “Here we go go go go on an adventure.” By the time you are reading this, we will be on one. Our Weekend in Philly series starts today and I am still trying to decide where we will visit first. There are so many great destinations in Philly to choose from. Some will be old favorites we’ll return to and others will be new to us. I’m feeling a mix of excitement and anxiety as I firm up our plans while still giving our extended weekend some flexibility to just wing it.
Have you ever felt that way?
Perhaps the marketing folks at the Independence Visitor Center read my mind. Check out this great video they sent me.
