Philadelphia Urban Adventures’ witty, omniscient guides tailor their Soul of Center City to the holidays, whisking sightseers to hotspots of yuletide cheer and history. Merry-makers shuttle off from the corner of N. 15th Street and Market Street toward the Macy’s display, where a twinkling light show entertains eyes. At the nearby historic Reading Terminal Market, an epic model-train set delights tour-goers of all ages. Next, stop at the holiday village in Love Park, where wooden booths proffer cups of hot chocolate and boiling-hot reindeer tears. The park also provides shutterbugs with an opportunity to snap photos of a majestic Christmas tree, which beckons guests to sit on its needley lap and wish for toys or better-defined quadriceps. The family-friendly journey takes revelers past some of Philadelphia’s newest landmarks, such as the Comcast Building’s massive LED TV screen. Tours often reach full capacity, so booking early is recommended.
