That Philly flavor everywhere.

Historic neighborhoods, cultural hotspots, nature hikes.  We got it all, yo.

Independence Hall

Where it all began... the birthplace of our nation and its founding documents.  The UNESCO World Heritage site in the heart of historic Old City sees over 4 million visitors per year.  It serves as a continuous reminder of our city's deep history, and our potential for great achievements.

Fairmount Park

One of the largest municipal parks in the country, Fairmount has over 2,000 acres of trails, athletic fields, and public art.  Outdoorsy Philadelphians enjoy activities ranging from disc golf and mountain biking to historic waterworks and Japanese Gardens.

Temple University

Philadelphia is a city of higher learning, with dozens of schools at undergraduate, graduate, and technical levels.  Temple University is the city's publicly funded 4-year school whose campus sits on North Broad Street.  It's programs and students embody the city's ethos of hard work and creativity.

Eastern State Penitentiary

My favorite place to take tourists--nowhere else like it in the country... and to think we almost lost it back in the 90's to a mall.  Think solitary confinement, the Quaker way and then how it evolved over the subsequent 150 years.  Frank Furness architecture is totally cool too.... as is the Halloween haunted house.

 

West Philly

West Philly is the best neighborhood in Philadelphia! Complete with Victorian duplexes, this architectural wonder is a delight for students, young professionals, and families.

Old City Bar Crawl

when friends and family come to town, we always heck out indpendence mall & cooperage whicky bar

Kelly Drive

you can do whatever you want down the drive....whatever (smile)

Water Works

Clean water let the city grow. When the steam engines exploded they reverted to ancient water power. Chill place. Timeless. Green.

 

Race Street Pier

Quiet tranquility on the waterfront. The hustle and bustle of the city is behind you and the beautiful Delaware in front.

Watkins

Great local bar, amazing beers

South Street

South Street is so culturally diverse and has a lot of unique shops. It is a home away from home.

El Rancho Viejo

Authentic Mexican

 

 

Wissahickon Gorge

The Wiss is the single best slice of nature in a major urban center in the country. Maybe the world. Probably the world, but who cares what anyone outside of Philly thinks. You can hike around the Wissahickon and absolutely lose yourself in the trees, creeks, and rocks. Hard to believe it exists.

Greenstreet Coffee

Great lattes and vibe!
