Philadelphia continues its tradition as a (junk) food town

    The Junk Food Tour is probably good for local business, but it’ll definitely wreak havoc on your digestive tract. The food town reputation is nice an all, but it also earns us low ranks on lists like the “100 Best and Worst” cities for health. Can you say, “Wing Bowl”?

    As uwishunu touts, the Junk Food Tour lets you “challenge yourself to some mobile gullet-stuffing.” Because simply eating a cheesesteak isn’t enough.

    Though it won’t earn us points for fitness, the five-hour Junk Food Tour does include some cool tourist stops like Boat House Row and the new National Museum of American Jewish History.
