Grim Philly

Though Washington, DC, has taken Philadelphia's place as the capital of the United States, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Grim Philly's tour guides—all of whom have at least a bachelor's degree in history—dredge up past centuries' landmark events and scandals, even ghosts and pirates, during their 75-minute walking tours, which made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight, with stops at a theater that was once a prostitution mecca for working girls of the night, the site of the first bank robbery, and Independence Hall.

It's not all history, however. The Bootlegger's Ball, a "historic and haunted pub crawl," begins with a tour of significant brewing spots throughout the city, detailing the drinking habits of early Philadelphians, but later veers right into the arms of a series of bartenders. Each watering hole visited treats tour-goers to beer, moonshine, and other elixirs, much as Al Capone, Waxy Gordon, and other prohibition-era gangsters may have done.
