Pat's vs. Gino's is the long time Philadelphia Cheesesteak Rival. This is probably the most touristy place to buy a cheesesteak in Philadelphia. We both don't have a preference as to which place is best, but they are across the street from each other, so maybe you should decide?

This is a city park that has great views of the parkway. Pro-tip: locals swim in the fountain when it gets really hot. I'm not saying it is legal, I'm just saying people do it.
