Kabul

If you are looking for something different, then try out this Afghanistan restaurant. The food is fantastic and cheap!! My girlfriend and I had entrees and split two appetizers, and our bill was under $30.00. Entrees are a variety of meat dishes (lamb, beef and chicken make up the bulk of the menu) mixed with dried fruits and fresh vegetables. I highly recommend the cooked pumpkin topped with yogurt, meat and bean sauce. It's unusual, but it is definitely delicious!!!

How does a 7-course Moroccan dinner you eat with your hands sound? How about live entertainment that includes belly dancers? And what if you got all of this for $20/person? That's what you get when you go to Casablanca's, but do give yourself about 2 hours to fully enjoy the 7-course meal. Shortly after being seated on cushions rather than chairs, you will be greeted by a waiter (wearing a fez and traditional Moroccan garb) who will wash your hands in Rose Water. Drinks are then ordered, followed by requesting your preferences for the 7-course meal (the choices are chicken, spicy chicken, beef, lamb or vegetarian). Courses include is 3 salads: Carrot salad, cucumber salad and a warm eggplant...Read More

I think this is the best place to eat in the Delaware Valley. Located in the middle of Valley Forge National Park, you will be enchanted by the feast of senses that you will experience upon walking inside of the mansion. From appetizers to desserts, you’ll enjoy a sumptuous presentation of French and Northern Italian cuisine. Everything on the menu is made fresh in the kitchen of the Mansion and features the best meat, fowl and locally grown produce. Sautéed Quail Juniper Berries and Madeira Wine Sauce, Veal Medallions Concordia underlined with Veal Sauce and Tomato-Basil Concasse', Medallions of Ostrich with aged Port Wine and Lingonberry Sauce, and Farm Raised New Zealand Venison Chop with Chestn...Read More

Quote:
Duling-Kurtz is a 200-year-old house and barn that was converted into an Inn and Restaurant. If you visit on the weekend, during the summer, don't be surprised if a couple is getting married under the Gazebo by the creek that runs behind the Inn/Restaurant. The scenery is beautiful and the restaurant is cozy. You'll instantly feel like you are transported back in time, when you listen to the crackling fireplace and enjoy your dinner by candlelight in a 2-century-old barn turned restaurant. Prepare to have you taste buds mesmerized by the delicious French cuisine offered in the intimate rooms of the restaurant. My favorites are the Tequila Crab Cocktail with jumbo lump crab, papaya, ...Read More

Philadelphia Museum of Art

Attraction | "Sunday's at the Philadelphia Museum of Art"

Quote:
From 10am to 1pm on Sundays, admission is free at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This saves everyone a cool $8 a ticket. Pretty much all of the exhibits are open for viewing by everyone, but special exhibits may still cost you $$$ for admission.

You'll find everything from local artists (Andrew Wyeth being one of the most notable) to Van Gogh and Picasso, among the many, many rooms of the Museum. My favorite is the Far East Ancient Art Exhibit.

HOURS:

Tue-Sun 10:00am- 5:00pm

Wed 10:00am- 8:45pm

Dave & Buster's

Attraction | "Dave & Buster's"

Quote:
D & B's is awesome! If you want to take a first date to someplace fun or spend a night with the family, then stop by Dave and Busters. D & B's offers a bar, a few restaurants, pool tables, mock-casino games, virtual reality, arcade games and games for prizes under one roof. It can get a little expensive if you spend a few hours there, but it's well worth the trip.

Few people know this, but King of Prussia Mall has more retail square footage than the Mall of America in Minnesota. King of Prussia Mall offers a few hundred stores that include Neimann Marcus, Macy's, JCPenneys, Sears, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, and Strawbridge's. If you can't find what you need at King of Prussia Mall, then you probably won't find it anywhere.

Liberty Bell

Attraction

Liberty Bell Photo, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Quote:
Let freedom ring! Probably the symbol of freedom in this country, the Liberty Bell is rich with history and legend. Rang on July 8, 1776, the sound of this bell drew crowds of citizens to Independence Hall to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. Located across from Independence Hall, the bell resides in a glass museum and it is viewable at all hours of the day. If you are in Philadelphia in 2001, please add the Liberty Bell to your list of historical sights to see. This will be the last year that people will be able to take a picture standing next to the bell. Philadelphia is moving the bell about 50 feet to a new Museum and the bell will be sealed up...Read More
