My photographer Evelyn England and I headed up to Bradenton to the Manatee Performance Arts Center (MPAC) in July for a photo shoot with their Executive Director Janene Witham. We both left with the same impressions: the MPAC is huge and wonderful. Janene is petite and amazing.

If you could visit typical but significant historic sites in the U.S. and have some nightlife, would that be a perfect combination? Often times you trade one for the other, but can you get both? In Philly, I’d have to say yes. The city has some magnificent museums, mansions and a smattering of historical sites scattered about. But the biggest and most obvious spots are in or near Old City.
