There’s No Place Like Home: Fun in Philly

Although we’re not traveling much these days, we can still have lots of fun in the Philadelphia region.

Irene Levy Baker, author of two Philly-centric books, will be here to explain how. She’ll help you plan a “stay-cation” and make sure you never waste your free time doing laundry.

Find out where to have adventures (including good places to social distance), secret destinations even long-time locals don’t know about, where to create fun family memories, and how to help restaurants survive with limited capacities.

Based on the second edition of her book, 100 Things To Do In Philadelphia, published in October 2020, her presentation will be adjusted to account for current coronavirus-related openings and closings.

Irene Levy Baker is author of 100 Things To Do In Philadelphia Before You Die and Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia, and owner of Spotlight Public Relations, a firm specializing in restaurants and hospitality. Prior to that she spent many years working at the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau.
