Did you know that you can explore the house where famous author Edgar Allan Poe wrote and published some of his greatest tales? It's true! This National Historical Site, located in Philly's Northern Liberties neighborhood, was once home to Poe, his wife and, for about a year, his mother-in-law, during which time he wrote "The Black Cat." Today, visitors can enjoy self-guided or ranger-led tours of the three-story, red brick home, as well as an eight-minute audio-visual presentation on Poe's life, all for free. It's a great way to see an offbeat site when touring the city while still remaining within your budget.
