Grim Philly Twilight Tours
Though Washington DC has taken Philadelphia's place as the capitol 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 bachelors 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.
