I recently went to Philadelphia to visit my sister. Even though I had been to Philly before, I had never been to Reading Terminal Market. All I knew about the place was that it was an indoor market and was featured in one of my favorite movies, National Treasure.

Here are my observations when I went to Reading Terminal Market for the first time:

1. Finally, I'm here.

*Reading Terminal Market is housed in a former train shed, known as Reading Terminal.

3. Oh my god there are so many donuts.

5. I see a peanut butter cup with M&M's on it. I'm never leaving this building.

6. Wow, there are great looking fruits and veggies. I would totally be willing to take broccoli back on the train with me.

7. I can see how this was a great hiding place for Abigail Chase in National Treasure.

8. There are so many people here. This is the best type of chaos.

*Reading Terminal Market opened shop in the mid 1800s.

14. I wish it wasn't 10 a.m. because I would totally get ice cream.

15. There are so many cookies to choose from.

Obviously I really liked Reading Terminal Market. I'm already planning my trip back. Those donuts and hoagies will be there with open arms to welcome me home.
