had a blast just wish I knew what the wrong directions were before getting to far.

I love that the history learned in this quest isn't stuff I've heard before! I learned about Philadelphia's "caves", how Chinatown began, and lots more. It doesn't keep you in the same square blocks, either; you get to see a quite few spots around Old City! The questions were just challenging enough. A couple threw me for a loop, but that's the fun of it.
