Day 18 - Hatfield, Pennsylvania to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

July 8, 2015

Today's post is written by Cody!

Woke up in Hatfield PA early ready to put our tourist hats on and grab the selfie sticks. The park we stayed at was nice and the staff was extremely friendly. We jumped in the truck and headed south into the city of brotherly love. We began the tour with the bell and visitor center. Both were very visitor friendly. After the historic tour on sixth street we grabbed a cab and headed to flag way, well that is what I called it. We were dropped right at the iconic love statue, which was bussling with activity. Once we got our in love selfies in with the statue in the background it was food time. 

I have had the dream of eating a Philly cheesesteak in Philly since I was very young. Now that we were eating in philly I would make this dream a reality. That and a shandy beer on a hot day hit the spot. This was probably not the smartest idea right before concurring the rocky steps. We took the pics at the steps like true tourists and we were both shot for the day.

We hopped a cab again back to the truck. I may have grabbed another cheesesteak from a street vendor on the way. I had forgot to mention above the parking situation we ran into. The truck is 7 ft tall, this is a problem in most parking garages, but we found a very tall one that was underground. It seemed very sketchy and dark, but the valet that took care of us was very friendly and seemed first class. 

Driving back out to the RV seemed like forever, but we arrived and napped like true vacationers. Once awake it was time for Natasha's favorite activity.... Shopping! we hit the local stores then the mall. Didn't buy much and it was worth the suffering. We hit hibachi and sushi after to close the day's activities.
