Philadelphia Visitor’s Center – Not Just for Tourists

It seems that I keep bumping up against things I don’t know. Whether it’s a fact I didn’t know or a place I wasn’t aware of before, it seems that at least several times a week I discover something new.It used to bother me and make me feel less "in the know," but now I put my ego aside and just enjoy the moment of basking in something new.
