Lauren McCutcheon was born in, grew up outside of, and currently lives in Philadelphia. She loves it here. She is an editor at Philadelphia magazine, author of A Virgin’s Guide to Everything (Warner Books, 2005) and The Right Way (David & Charles, 2006), former restaurant critic for Philadelphia Weekly, and former editor for the Philadelphia site of Some of her favorite things to do in the city include breakfast at Parc on Rittenhouse Square (or, if in a rush, a cappuccino at La Colombe), visit the Perelman's design exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, shop at Vagabond in Old City, do yoga at Practice in Queen Village, and consume oysters and Cava at the Oyster House. In that order.

Carrie Havranek writes about travel, food, and culture from her home in Easton, PA, and uses the marble rolling pin from her Pennsylvania Dutch great aunt nearly every day.

Take a side trip to Lancaster County, where you can arrange to enjoy a meal in an Amish home. See chapter 12.

  • Great book, made for a great trip!

    We used this book to plan a trip to Phila with our two kids (5 and 8). It was great! Love Frommers guides - we always count on them. The resturant recommendations were not the best for our family, but we did manage to muddle through on our own. Their recommendation of a jewelry store called Halloween, which I would not have known about otherwise, was worth the cost of the book! An amazing store!
