I will be in Philly for a little over a week staying at a friends house. I will be staying on Osborne Street but will be without a car. I am trying to find things to do to keep busy during the day. I see that it is close to Fairmount Park. I guess more or less I am wondering if there are any neat things to do that are close (walking distance) to this area. I am up for shopping (also, are there any good bead shops close?), hiking, nature type things... parks, etc.
Also... I might be able to be droped off somewhere to spend the day... with this in mind I was wondering what are some of the really great things to do in Fairmount Park? Keep in mind I love nature, hiking & photography!
Thanks in advance to anyone who is able to help me out with this!
