Hi Everybody,

I am moving to Baltimore at the end of july and was thinking about driving up to Phili for my birthday the first week in August. The Walnut Street Theatre is showing a production of Les Miserables and I've always wanted to see that show. I am just wondering is the theatre in the middle of downtown? Is there anything else near bye. My family wantes to do some more touristy type things in phili--we are all history buffs too. Also the kids want to go to Hershey, is that near Phili? I am just trying to get an idea about what there is to keep everyone happy while I am at the show. Any thoughts would be helpful, thanks!

The Walnut Street Theater is right in the heart of center city Philly. It is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the English-speaking world. The historical district is within easy walking distance. Hershey Park is about 90 minutes away.

Default Great, that helps...

Thanks for the reply...so I assume the historical district includes the liberty bell and all that great phili history? Hotels are probably pretty pricey in that area, right? Any other must see spots in that area?

If you are willing to use Hotwire or Priceline, you can often get good deals on hotels in Philly, close to the historic sites and the Walnut St Theater. The Sheraton Society Hill and the Holiday Inn Historic District, for instance, are frequently discounted. The disadvantage of using these discounters is that you must prepay and the payment is non-refundable.

Productions at the Walnut St Theater are excellent, by the way. I have season tickets and am never disappointed.
