While attending Comic Con in Philly, whether you’re a resident or visitor, there’s no better time to explore the rest of the city. Over the course of the weekend, you can certainly hit up most of the city’s landmarks, including Geno’s Steaks, where you’ll find the best cheesesteak in Philly.
The cheesesteak is a longstanding staple of Philadelphia and you can’t spend a weekend in the city (or even a day for that matter) without being able to say you’ve gotten one for yourself. But don’t let an excellent Comic Con convention in Philadelphia be marred by an average cheesesteak, get the very best from Geno’s.
