Philadelphia’s wealth of history is a treasure trove of hidden gems of the weird and bizarre.
Follow Free Tours By Foot as we pluck out the most eclectic and unique nuggets to share with you as we explore Logan Circle and all it beholds.
Beyond the surface of beautiful architecture and photographic vistas, there is a deep layer of the eccentric. Battles of the Bone Wars, breaking a will over art, religious riots and cults, graffiti about resurrection, public executions, a city-wide curse, and oh so much more!
This tour is PG-13 for gore and scandal but can be censored for family-friendly audiences.
