  • Points of Interest

Stroll the city and eat like a local on the entertaining and educational Flavors of Philly walking tour. At several stops throughout the city, try some of Philadelphia’s most popular and favorite foods — soft pretzels, tomato pie, cheese fries and its signature cheesesteak sandwich — while a local guide fills you in on the city’s unique culinary history and architecture. Also enjoy sweet treats from the bustling Reading Terminal Market as you browse the stalls selling fresh groceries, flowers, crafts and more.

The next day is yours to explore the city at your leisure before embarking on a delightful farewell dinner cruise. Departing from Penn’s Landing aboard the “Spirit of Philadelphia,” sail in style as you enjoy a sumptuous buffet spread and watch the Philadelphia and Camden, New Jersey, skylines light up while the sun sets on the Delaware River.

What we love:
• During your food tour, you’ll get an up-close look at Philadelphia’s City Hall, the tallest masonry building in the world.
• All of the recipes used in your hotel’s eclair shop were created by John Iuzzini, named “Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation in 2006.
• Philadelphians take their sandwiches very seriously — there’s a long-lived debate among cheesesteak aficionados regarding what type of cheese should be used.
