I'll be attending La Salle University in the fall. Please recommend things to do/places to visit!

So far, I've only seen the Liberty Bell & Elfreth's Alley. We bought one thing at Reading Terminal Market, but it was closing.

Are you familiar with trip advisor? If not, get started on it.

Do the whole Independence Hall tour. Just to see everything once.

Walk down to South Street. A lot of cool shops and places to eat. If you drive, pay for the garage at the Whole Foods or down by 3rd. People get towed all the time on South St for expired meters. Probably why Parking Wars is filmed in Philly.

You totally have to do the museums one day. Note most are closed on Mondays. And the Franklin Institute.

Go see an independent film at the Ritz Bourges.

Winter time go ice skating at the waterfront and see the xmas light show at the old Wanamaker building.

Take the NJ transit train from 30th st station to AC and enjoy the shore. When you are 21 enjoy the casinos.

Drive out to Longwood Gardens if that's your thing. (lots of Photography students go there)

Take Amtrak to NYC for the week-end (money permitting) You can also take NJ Transit and change trains in Trenton.

Enjoy some coffee and a hoagie at Wawa at 2am.

Take Patco over to Collingswood and enjoy a BYOB dinner

Go up to New Hope and browse the off beat stores and cute downtown.

Go down to Italian market and buy some fruit and veggies, maybe some cured meat and cheese. And those awesome Italian flag cookies that are mostly all almond paste and chocolate (so good)

Go to Pats and Geno's once and get cheese steaks. (but my favorite is Steve's Prince of Steaks in NE Philly)

Go see the Flyers, Sixers, Eagles or Phillies.

I may think of some more later.

Since you gave no info whatsoever on at least your interests, I suggest Googling "things to do in Philadelphia."

Fort Mifflin.

Take PATCO to Haddonfield. The Hessians marched down Kings Highway on the way to the Battle of Red Bank. There are lots of shops & restaurants.
