Some Scout Report readers may know about "The Sound of Philadelphia", but have they ever encountered the "SoundAboutPhilly" site? If they haven't, they will want to do so at their earliest convenience. This series of "sound-seeing" tours are told by real-life Philadelphians, and dynamic mapping features, audio, text, and photographs accompany these lively tours. This whole project is sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation and The Pew Charitable Trusts. The tours present a heady brew of Philadelphia lore, past and present, and visitors can wander through offerings like "History Unplugged", "Philly Noir", and "My Philly". Anyone who knows anything about Philadelphia will not want to miss "Philadelphia Flavorhoods", as it will take them through the flavorful haunts of Chinatown, the Reading Terminal Market, and the famous corner of 9th and Passyunk.
