Though Philly Food Factory specializes in the city's signature treats, that doesn't mean chefs plays it safe with its recipes. Instead, they mix and match ingredients to create super-fusions of classic Philly snacks and sandwiches. They top burgers with portions of cheesesteak, stuff cheese sandwiches with scrapple, and even create hybrid cheesesteaks with a trio of beef, steak, and chicken grilled into one towering sandwich. Chefs blend mac and cheese with bits of cheesesteak and fill Italian spring rolls with four styles of charcuterie. Even non-native treats such as wings get a unique touch from six styles of sauce, including orange cream. All of the dishes pair well with any drink thanks to the shop's BYOB policy, which allows guests to bring in their favorite microbrews or ultra-aged wine skins from an archeological dig.

Just south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the Delaware River bustles with activity. On its western shore lies Philadelphia's waterfront, with destinations such as Penn's Landing. To the east is Camden, which holds its own against the Pennsylvania capital with attractions such as Adventure Aquarium, where Aquaman moonlights as a jellyfish. But perhaps the area's biggest draw is the meeting place between these two locales: the Delaware River itself.

RiverLink Ferry's two-story sightseeing vessel, the M/V Freedom, traverses these waters for sightseeing tours of the waterfront's architecture or fall foliage. The ferry serves a practical purpose as well; it regularly travels point-to-point between Philadelphia and Camden, so commuters can move between the two cities with ease.

In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.

The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

Sunlight and moonbeams glimmer on Philadelphia harbor, where The Ben Franklin Yacht glides silently to reveal a new perspective on the cradle of American democracy and replicate the freedom of the open ocean. Recently refurbished, the modern vessel hosts up to 300 guests in long, low decks whose mirrored ceilings flood the space with reflected light and expose pirates who have "Mom" tattoos hidden in their bald spots. A wooden dance floor and bar fuel parties, and knowledgeable guides propel discussion about the city's history from the breezy top deck. The majestic vessel may also be rented out for private parties. The port of departure is within walking distance of other famed sights, such as the Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and the cherry tree from which George Washington famously crafted his wooden wig. Boarding begins approximately 30 minutes prior to each excursion.

American Sailing Tours, featured on Wheretraveler.com, loads citizens onto the good ship Summer Wind for relaxation and education on the Delaware River. The jolly crew handles all the hatch-battening, jib-cutting, and barnacle frying on each excursion. Meanwhile seafarers learn about the Delaware's contributions to Philadelphia history on the History Sail, which embarks once per day, six mornings a week. Customers on the Tropical Sail tap sea-toes to the beat of beach music from the Caribbean, New Orleans, and New Margaritaville two or three times a day depending on the time of year; check the online schedule for an idea of departure dates and times.

DeTours Touring whisks stationary sightseers on seg-legs through a leisurely perambulation of the magnificent landmarks, charming neighborhoods, and majestic fjords of historic Philadelphia. Over the course of the 4-mile segway blue tour route, riders cruise past the Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, and Ben Franklin's helicopter pad. As groups include no more than six, historical inquirers will have ample opportunity to pose questions to their tour captain—questions about the history, architecture, and culture of Philadelphia are vastly preferred over questions about the shape of one's birthmark. Tours are offered at 1:30 p.m. year-round and at 4 p.m. April through September.
