The city of brotherly love in all its beauty. Although the sports fans are a little over the top the city itself is so historical and beautiful. Here is a list of things to do if you ever get to visit.
1. Go see the Liberty Bell.
Okay if you are visiting Philly this is one of the obvious things to do. The Liberty Bell is so historic and beautiful. Plus outside of the liberty bell is the constitution center. This museum is full of information on the constitution and has a cool place called signers hall. Signers hall has statues of all the signers of the constitution.
2. Go to Spruce Street.
If you come to the city during the warmer times spruce street is the place to be. It is a little park on the Delaware with lights, hammocks and many other activities. As well as what is listed before this park has roller skating, giant chess, fountains and sometimes even a ferris wheel.
3. See City Hall.
First of all City Hall is beautiful with the statue of William Penn on top. There is a nice courtyard to go sit at during the summer. In the winter they have a giant Christmas tree with ice skating in front of it. In the summer it is just the pretty courtyard.
4. Visit the Betsy Ross House.
Who doesn't want to go to the house where the original flag of the United States was created. Betsy Ross house is a step into the past. With tours inside and just looking at it makes you feel like you are in colonial America.
5. Visit the LOVE sign.
This iconic sign is in a cute little park in center city. You can take a picture or you can sit by the fountain. Whatever you do it will be worth it.
6. Go to the Art Museum and run the Rocky Steps.
This cinematic dream is one of the best runs I have ever been up. Also, the art museum has some very pretty art. Plus you can find the Rocky Statue and take a picture with him.
7. Enjoy some of the best cheesesteaks around.
Throughout Philadelphia you can find cheesesteaks. However, all you need to do is go to Pats, Genos or Steves and have the best Philly Cheesesteak there is
8. Walk down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
This Parkway is home to a long road of flags from countries all over the world. There is a nice view of city hall and of the art museum. So no matter where you walk you can see the pretty city.
9. Go to the Franklin Institute or one of the other Museums in the area.
These Museums alone have so much to offer and see. They offer looks into all different types of history. The Franklin Institute is so interactive and has different exhibits all the time. While the Museum of Natural Sciences shows you dinosaurs and other cool prehistoric animals.
10. Go to the Philadelphia Zoo and Camden Aquarium (even though Camden is in New Jersey).
The zoo and aquarium are great places to see all the wonderful animals. It is personally one of my favorite spots to visit. With tigers walking over you to standing in a tunnel surrounded by sharks. These sites are some of Phillies best.
11. Last but certainly not least. Go visit the home of the Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, 76ers, Union and Wings.
The stadium area is home to all three stadiums for Philadelphias Sports teams. From the eagles (fly eagles fly), to the phillies, sixers and flyers philadelphia sports fans are some on the most interesting.
