Maybe you’re a born-and-raised Philly resident, maybe you're just in town for the weekend. Maybe you thought you were going to Boston, but you got on the wrong bus, fell asleep, and now you’re stuck here until tomorrow morning.
It matters not.
What matters is that your passion for US history burns like the fire of a thousand torches in the clutch of Lady Liberty’s hand.
And, more importantly, you’ve got a hot date tonight. Maybe she grew up in your neighborhood and you finally got the nerve to make a move. Maybe you met him at karaoke last night. Maybe he/she was sitting next to you on the bus and, though you were drooling out of both sides of your mouth the entire trip, still thought you looked cute somehow.
And so your motive is two-fold:
Learn as much as you can about the historic city of Philadelphia.
Impress this person. Earn their love.
Easy enough, right?
Perfect for info junkies who favor historical narratives with a touch of horror mixed in. Hear stories about vampires, pirates, ghosts, and scandalous sexual escapades in this R-rated nighttime tour of Philadelphia’s darker corners.
Remember, you’ve already convinced somebody to go out with you. The truly scary part is already over.
Take a walk in the shoes of perhaps the most influential Philadelphian of all time -- Mr. Benjamin Franklin. You may know him best as the fellow who electrocuted himself with a kite or as the guy who left Nicholas Cage all those clues in National Treasure. OR if you handle hundred-dollar bills often, you might know him from those (if so, good for you. We’re sooo impressed).
Turns out, Franklin did a lot of other stuff too -- he was a politician, an inventor, a businessman, a writer, printer, postmaster, scientist, and diplomat, among other things. He was no stranger to romance either. Neither are you, which is precisely why you’re here.
Take your date on a one-of-a-kind tour. Play your cards right and you may be able to “discover” a little electricity between the two of you.
How’s this for a pairing -- Philadelphia gangster stories and beer? Seems like that’d go together well, right?
Show off your dangerous side with this unique Philly pub crawl anchored in stories about notorious gangsters and hauntings of Philadelphia’s famed waterfront. You and your date will enjoy three complimentary drinks as you get acquainted with some of Philly’s most notorious gangsters, including Al Capone, Mickey Duffy, Waxey Gordon, and Leo Lanzetti.
Taste the naughty side of Philadelphia’s history, while tasting beer.
No brainer, right? Hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage for the picture-perfect date night with your special someone. You’ll cruise around Philadelphia at speeds of up to 3 to 4 miles per hour, while learning about the historical sites you see along the way.
Buckle up. The cart may not be fast, but the information, culture, and good times you’ll experience might just blow you away.
Ever wondered what it’d be like to live a more simple life? Do you find yourself feeling bogged down by technology? Have you always wanted to be a hat person, but never had the courage to wear a fedora in public?
Go Amish for a day. Whisk your date far away from the world of personal computers and tablet devices, where your budding love will flourish without distraction. Visit an Amish homestead, shop in Amish stores and bakeries, and Watch an F/X theater presentation of Jacob’s Choice, all while wearing a hat (if you want to).
