Eastern State Penitentiary

Few things excite me more than a crumbling decrepit building of living history that I’m aloud to wander around in and touch things!  Make it a jail (anyone else obsessed with prison shows? Just me? Okay….) and the dark tourist inside is doing a creepy little dance.  I found it hard to contain my enthusiasm as we pulled up to what looked oddly like a medieval castle in the middle of downtown Philadelphia.  Although the day was very warm (keeping it REAL with the sweaty… I mean SPARKLING photos) we had the best time exploring the ground that housed Al Capone and countless other souls.

I took way too many photos, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking through.

As you can tell, the exterior went from pretty and gram-able to creepy real quick!

The Steve Buscemi-narrated audio tour really set the mood.

I was so into this closed off cell block.  $10,000 to spend the night?

The greenhouse was one of the few places on campus that was full of light.  I loved the art installation that was set up while I was there.

On the way out…

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.  What spooky spot should we visit next?
