While historic landmarks like Penn's Landing and the Liberty Bell are still main attractions in Philadelphia, the city has a lot more to offer than a history lesson. South Street in historic downtown Philly is one place that draws thousands of visitors every day, from all walks of life, thanks to its beautiful murals, specialty boutiques and eateries that sell the famous Philly cheese steaks. With unconventional shops and a variety of restaurants, there is more than enough to do in one day on South Street, for everyone from the daytime shopper to the late-night partier (many locations don't close until 2 a.m.)

From its founding 300 years ago as William Penn's planned "greene countrie towne," Philadelphia has been a city meant to be lived in. The neighborhoods of Center City (what natives call "downtown" Philadelphia) and beyond all have their own quirks and personalities. You can amble from the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country (Elfreth's Alley) past the most historic square mile in all of America, down to the retro-hip of South Street and the ethnic markets of South Philly.

Courts, cafes, nonprofits, gyms, government offices - you name the place, it's likely been closed for days. That made getting to work Friday, the first true clear day of the week, all the more crucial. But commuting delays spread from car to bus to light rail and even to walkers, who struggled with footing on slippery streets. A commute by car from Columbia to Baltimore, which usually takes 35 minutes, stretched to an hour and a half. There were fewer bus routes, no aboveground Metro service, and the light rail was limited to single-track operations in some areas.
