Vacation Plans

We are planning a visit to the Philadelphia area for this fall. It will be my first time in the area which is extrodinary considering that I have been married to a Philly native for 26 years! Because his parents had retired and moved to Florida by the time we were married, there's never been any trips "back home" for us.

We are going to attend a wedding in New Jersey and I want to visit New Castle Delaware and Philadelphia. I have ancestral connections, on my dad's side, to New Castle (in the 1600's) and I want to see the liberty bell and independence hall. Jerry wants to do some visiting in Pennsylvania so not sure if we will have time for Atlantic city or Valley Forge (or Gettysburg).

I'm excited because this will all be new for me. Anyone else have suggestions on must see places in the area? I ordered visitor's guide but they are both kinda shopping oriented.
