Since we’ll soon be moving our son from quaint Oxford, Ohio, to historic Philadelphia, I’ve been checking out Philly’s hotels and must-see’s. And because May is National Preservation Month, I’m focusing on the grand, old dames of architecture.

Here are a few interesting sites I came across (of course, I’m looking for input from those in the know, so please share):

  • According to its website, McGillin’s Olde Ale House is the oldest continually operating tavern in Philadelphia. Its beer taps have been flowing since Lincoln was elected president and last year, in celebration of its 150th anniversary, the tavern launched its own label called McGillin’s 1860 IPA. Unfiltered, like it was in the 1800s. Sounds like something worth checking out, yes?

Don’t forget, I’m looking for more ideas. Send me some comments!

  1. We stay at the Conwell Inn whenever we’re in Philly for visiting Temple. It’s a great hotel. Convenient, reasonably priced and the staff is s super friendly.
