The word about Indego is definitely out now – and that should be a good thing. The numbers would lead one to believe it is; 8,000 rides in the first week isn’t a bad number at all. However, on a system with about 60 stations – three of which are still not…

Never would I have expected my phone would go off late Tuesday evening alerting me that an Amtrak train I take regularly had derailed. Does that mean I never considered a derailment as a possible event? Absolutely not. The very sad reality about the…

Dilworth Park is a stunning improvement over the former Dilworth Plaza. While maybe not as famous as the neighboring Love Park (actually called JFK Plaza), it's become a far better place to meet. I can't vouch for the on-site cafe, but there are plenty of alternative options surrounding City Hall. Seating is abundant, the lawn, however small, is a welcome addition for the warmer months, and the fountain, which shows the transit underneath in real time, converts to an ice rink in the winter. The two beautifully curved entryways lead down to a remarkable new SEPTA station. Yes, you read that right: a SEPTA station that is genuinely remarkable, and in the right way. While the new Dilworth Park entrance still leads to the old 15th Street and City Hall stations below, it makes 15th Street an accessible station at long last. Renovations to the existing stations should take place over the next five years.

Newark isn't the worst airport I've been to, but it has a considerable amount of room for improvement. It's old, and some terminals show that more than others. As I usually fly United, I'm most familiar with Terminal C, but I've flown out of both of the other terminals, and there's a huge difference in quality. If you like to shop a lot before getting on the plane, Terminal C has the biggest selection. If you're looking for a place to sit - let alone sit and charge a phone - good luck. What little seating there is throughout the airport is often falling apart, if not already broken. Power outlets are rare, working ones even more so. AirTrain, the monorail, works and generally comes every three to five minutes. But, it's slow and hideous. The fact that it's a Bombardier system may be the only reason why it actually still works. It's connection to Amtrak and NJ Transit is a very welcome feature, especially when you've flown out of Newark to remember what things were like before it. Don't expect a spectacular station though: it serves its purpose, but offers little more than that.

While not nearly as large as the actual flagship store (5th Avenue in New York), the Philadelphia location is worthy of being it. From the clever displays in the historic window fronts, to the color cycling steps tucked in the corner, Uniqlo has done a beautiful job breathing new life into the old AI building. It may very well have the best selection outside of their New York stores, and I've never seen anything out-of-stock. If you can't find something, just ask. The staff are always happy to help. The clothes themselves are well-made and reasonably priced. Beware though, that makes it easy to spend an hour or more inside without realizing it.

For those whose sweet tooths long for something a bit different and whose pockets are a bit deeper, the oldest continuously running confectionary in the US is one you shouldn't miss. Unlike their sister store, The Franklin Fountain, Shane *does* accept credit cards, so go ahead, splurge a little. Most candies are handmade on-site. The higher prices *do* match the higher quality you'll find here.

Easily my favorite aquarium in the US, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is huge and home to several carefully planned exhibits. It can get very crowded on weekends and during the holidays, so keep that in mind if you need to get from one end of the building to the other for a show or other event. Be sure to take in the views of the bay, either from the deck or the third floor roof (accessible from the Kelp Forest area) or even the restaurant, and yes, there is one tucked off to the side from the cafeteria. Reservations are both accepted and recommended as it's on the small side. Menu is seasonal and on the pricier side, but each table has a set of binoculars to look out at the bay with. For an alternative experience, go on a behind-the-scenes tour. You'll learn a lot about the history of the aquarium and how it operates. Children are allowed, but some parts of the tours can be a bit technical.

Reading Terminal is a Philly icon for a good reason. Come hungry, because you'll probably leave full. If, by some crazy chance, you have room for dessert after a freshly prepared lunch or dinner, there are plenty of places for dessert, including the oldest ice cream company in the US, Bassetts. It will be loud and crowded inside, but that offers a new adventure on every visit.

There is a very good chance you'll always find a line at The Fountain, but it is always worth the wait. It is conveniently located a short walk from the 2nd Street subway station as well as Penn's Landing, depending on the direction you are coming from. The menu is extensive and there is a special menu for the colder months. Remember to stock up on cash as they do not take cards. This is a trip back in time after all. Be sure to save your receipt (docket for those of you visiting from overseas) and visit their sister shop, Shane Confectionery, conveniently located a couple doors down. You'll get a discount with valid receipt.
