To day we went on the KOA tour of Philadelphia with one other couple from the campgrounds, we left at 8:00 and returned a 6:00 a full day of sight seeing. Our tour guide Joyce was great and gave us a lot of history of the area. She told us to eat at the Campos restaurant, a tiny little hole in the wall  place and to have the Philly cheesteak, she said they were there for years and were the best in the city, where the locals go and she was right it was very good.We saw the first post office in the US and Ben Franklin was the US post office general, We saw the liberty bell and Independence hall where the US constitution and charter of independence was signed.We went into the Ben Franklin underground museum, Betsy Ross' house and Christ Church ,President George Washington and Ben Franklin were among those who attended this church and it still is an active congregation have 8-9 hundred a Sunday over half being visitors  and then we went down to Valley Forge. October 22nd we left there and came to the Washington DC Capital KOA into the Capital tomorrow.
