    The Kimmel Center

    This is not only an awesome place to see a concert or a play, but it is an incredible piece of art in and of itself. I mean in terms of both form and function. When it comes to discussing architecture...this is a masterpiece.

    I know there's Independence Hall and a few other things, but really, this place owns.

    I thought it would be for the bar that was the inspiration for Paddy's Pub in It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

    I would have thought it to be the chance to experience an authentic cheese steak sandwich.

    Nope. Art. This ridiculously expensive building is the best reason to visit Philly.

    I have also heard that west Philadelphia once had some nice playgrounds until some guys started making trouble in the neighborhood.

    Come to Philly and see my gun collection. You've got a friend in Pennsylvania!

    While the Kimmel Center is quite nice, just around the corner is an underground goldmine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%BCtter_Museum

    And, for all of you 'Fresh Prince' quoters... that neighborhood isn't up to no good these days since our former mayor dropped a bomb on it, burning down 70 homes and killing dozens of people.

    I thought it would be to see the famous wall of sentient penises

    I kinda wonder what would happen, and how people would react, if you pumped some of that reanimating gas from Return of the Living Dead into the Mutter Museum.

    The Kimmel Center looks right impressive, but it's hard to argue with Vin here:

    I have been to Philly many times as a truck driver, hence I did not get to much tourism.
