The City of Brotherly (and Sisterly) Love is calling your name. The Cradle of Liberty and Freedom, Philly is so much more than cheesesteaks and rabid sports fans. It’s rich in American history and impact on the United States’ fight for independence makes it a must visit. Tour Independence Hall, take a selfie in front of the Liberty Bell, and visit the Betsy Ross House and learn about the truth behind the Old Glory.
Philadelphia is all about Ben Franklin (you will see him everywhere!) and his impact on politics, science, culture, and the arts. But, this is also the scrappy, underdog city that gave birth to Rocky—you can run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and take your picture with Stallone.
It’s not just about American history in Philly. Philly’s art scene has exploded in recent years especially street art and murals which you can see all over Old City and downtown. Philly loves to eat and drink, too. This city basically invented beer and boasts the oldest brewery in America—Yuengling. So, grab a Geno’s beef and a lager and soak in all the culture that Philly has to offer.
Anytime is a good time to get outside with friends, but the best time for a Brews & Clues tour is when all the bars are serving.
Meet at the starting location, create a team name, and log in with your team. The tour will guide you through the city while you explore historic landmarks, learn local history, answer trivia questions, and solve puzzles. As you go, you’ll be guided to some of the best bars in town!

If you’re thinking of doing this tour… DO IT! My partner and I have been looking to spice things up by planning dates for one another and tonight was my night to plan. It was all-in-all a fantastic night! The “national-treasure-like” scavenger hunt was easy, it was fun, it was affordable! I’m so happy with my purchase and it’s really the perfect date night idea!
