In late June through early July, 2005, Robert and Sharon took a trip east to visit Sharon’s family in Canton, old friends and Lisa in DC, and Philadelphia. Sharon had never visited Philadelphia, and Robert and Sharon spent two days and nights, staying in a downtown Bed & Breakfast. They flew from Tacoma to Canton, and drove to DC, Philadelphia, and back to Canton for the flight home.

Philadelphia is often called the “birthplace of America”, because the Continental Congress met there in 1775-1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed there in 1776, and the Constitution was created and signed there in 1787. Philadelphia also served as the capital of the United States before it was moved to Washington, DC.

The historic sites in Philadelphia are worth seeing!
