Philadelphia Visitor Guide

In the summer of 2021, the Academy of Management Annual Meeting was supposed to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic, the offline conference was canceled and I wasn't allowed the chance to introduce my dear neighborhood to the fellow AoM visitors. However, the annual meeting is scheduled to take place again in Philadelphia in 2026 (July 31-August 4). Inspired by the Vancouver Visitor Guide by David Clough (UBC) and the Seattle Visitor Guide by Eunice Rhee (Seattle U.), I have created a guide for those visiting Philadelphia. I'm not so sure whether the places I mention would last through 2026, but I'd like to offer a list of my favorite places in Philly (at least in case I lose them from my memory).
