Things to Do
Independence National Historic Park
The Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, the National Constitution Center, the Benjamin Franklin Museum, and the Independence Visitor Center are just some of the highlights that make up Independence National Historical Park – most of which are free for visitors to explore.
Spruce Street Harbor Park
Named one of the best places to visit in Philadelphia – features colorful hammocks, floating gardens, beautiful lights, refreshing craft beer, and food from popular Philly restaurants/food trucks.
Philadelphia Museum of Art + The Rocky Steps
Two of the most popular attractions in Philadelphia. The art museum has a vast collection of art making it one of the largest art museums in the country and an absolute must-see on the city’s cultural circuit. The Rocky Statue has a near constant flow of people arriving daily to snap a picture at the bottom of the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and then hustle up the museum’s grand stairway to try their hand at the famous two-arms-raised salute.
One of the five original squares planned by city founder William Penn in the late 17th century. Some of the best fine dining experiences in the city as well as the home to luxury retails shopping which surrounds the handsome tree-filled park.
The Franklin Institute
The exhibits and mainstays at the Franklin Institute are, let’s face it, designed for hordes of school-aged kids on a field trip, but are just as cool when you’re grown up. Head to a Science After Hours event, where you can drink openly and wander around the museum while taking in the sights of the night’s theme; past themes have been speakeasies, Harry Potter, the cosmos… the sky is literally the limit here.
