3 Days in Philadelphia, PA

Hello everyone! These city guides can take a while for me to get written and up for y’all! I just want to make sure the content quality is on point and that you can really benefit from my guides. So, as usual, these are all of the things I ate, coffee I drank, and places I went in three days in Philadelphia. I spent quite a bit of the weekend at my friend’s house so you could probably do even more in three days if you were staying downtown!

I will also include all the places I didn’t go to but found in my search of the best things to do in the city.

As well, here is a YouTube video of my trip!


Read on to find my budget friendly list of places in Philly!

5 Healthy + Cheap Snacks from Trader Joe’s

Every college student loves three things: snacks, saving money, and Trader Joe’s. While we don’t always love being healthy, we know we need to be. Good thing Trader Joe’s has our back with snacks that are all of the above! Read on to find out my favorite healthy snacks from TJ’s.

Chomps Snack Stick

I received four different flavors of Chomps in my June Statusphere¬†box! I knew they had to be good if they were sold at TJ’s. Not only are they tasty, they’re also Whole 30 approved. My favorite flavor is the Salt n Pepper. If you want to try them yourself, check out their site and use promo code SUMMERCHOMPIN for 15% off and free shipping!

Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole + Organic Stone Ground Blue Corn Tortilla Chips

Not gonna lie, I’ve been known to sit down and eat half a container of this guacamole in one sitting. No guilt though – this guac is made with greek yogurt and the tortilla chips have less carbs and more protein than other choices!

Mediterranean Hummus + Reduced Guilt Pita Chips

This is the smoothest and creamiest hummus I’ve ever had – also the best flavor of hummus at TJ’s! These pita chips aren’t anything crazy but have less carbs than others so you can eat more hummus!

Gone Berry Crazy

Chocolate covered strawberries for only $2.99… sign me up! They are frozen but just leave em’ out for five minutes and they’ll be ready to eat for a sweet treat!

Sour Cream and Onion Cream Puffs

Legit have to stop myself from eating the whole bag – a better version of Cheeto puffs. Just try them and you won’t regret it.
