$29 for a Yellow Fever Walking Tour for Two ($58 Value)

In 1793, an unusually damp winter and extremely hot summer filled the streets of Philadelphia with swarms of flies and mosquitoes. The year might have passed by as merely an itchy one, but for the fact that scores of refuges, fleeing war in the Caribbean, began to pour into the city, some carrying yellow fever. In the weeks that followed, the disease overtook the city with terrifying speed, killing nearly 5,000 people. The Constitutional Guided Walking Tours' Yellow Fever tour leads patrons through Philadelphia's center while illuminating familiar sites with stories and anecdotes about the epidemic. Stops include the Benjamin Rush House Site, the home of the founding father, physician, and bloodletter. Tours are scheduled for Saturdays, June 22 and July 13, as well as Sundays, July 7 and 21, with groups of up to 45 leaving at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
