Once you've taken out-of-town guests to see the Liberty bell and Independence Hall, you can continue the tour of Philadelphia history by a visit to the colonial homes in old Germantown. The Wyck House on Germantown Avenue is particularly interesting as one of the oldest homes and hardly altered since the early 1800s, AND especially significant for its gardens --oldest... More

In the midst of several other historic attractions on Germantown Avenue, the Wick House and garden is an urban oasis. As far as house tours go, here there are only three rooms open on the ground floor, furnished in a mix of periods that give the home a lived-in look.

This is a fun neighborhood and a great little farm in the middle of the city! Really a surprise and a fun place to go with kids on a sunny day.

The home has been in the... More

The grounds are gorgeous (don't miss the rose garden) and the well-designed house is full of old furniture and historic gadgets. It is well worth the $5 and the staff are fantastic. Tours are extremely personalized. Our guide even offered to wait... More
