Reading Terminal Market is a must see in Philly. Great cheese steaks, Termini Bakery is a must ! Very interesting stop for Amish foods, great coffee, great local vendors. If you're a tourist or a local, it's always worth a visit.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn, close to the Reading Terminal and we found ourselves heading back there a couple times a day to eat or just wander around and check out all the little 'shops' or 'booths'.. So much history there!
