Landmark store in the heart of the Market East neighborhood.
This landmark store was once Wanamaker's, a Philadelphia classic and one of the country's first great department stores. Now, Macy's is running things, offering stock that's a shadow of what existed back in the day. Still, the giant eagle -- John Wanamaker's motif -- stands tall in the center of the dazzling center courtyard, right between the Cosmetics and Men's departments. The time to stop by here is in December. The center courtyard presents a wonderful Christmas light show while the building's massive, 30,000-pipe organ plays carols. A small cafe overlooks the scene from a third-floor terrace.
