    Schuylkill River Trail

    12 reviews

    If you're looking for a great, long trail on which to go for an all-day bike ride, this is it! We rode from South Philly out to Manayunk, using this as our main route, and it was blissful the entire way. The day after was a bit difficult, what with all the soreness we endured, but the scenic views and ...

    Philadelphia Zoo

    18 reviews

    One of my favorite places to visit as a kid! I wouldn't call the Philadelphia Zoo a typical zoo. They have more than the typical variety of animals and attractions. Amazingly entertaining for the entire family!

    Philadelphia Museum of Art

    42 reviews

    This place will always be a landmark for me. Not for the museum itself but as the place represented in the Rocky movies where he used to run through does steps during his training. It's super fun to go there, and also run over the steps and feel like Rocky.

    Comcast Center

    During Christmas season, you can watch a free 15-minute (once an hour) show on Comcast's massive (over 2,000 sq. f.) LED screen. It’s pretty impressive and fun. Every year it’s a different show.

    Eastern State Penitentiary

    16 reviews

    I'm the biggest scaredy cat in the world. I hate creepy places where you know suffering happened. I am a bit superstitious and I take spirits seriously. Despite all that, during the day, ESP is a decrepitly nice place to wander for a nice sunny afternoon. With the audioguide, I learned quite a bit about the prison systems and how ...

    Franklin Institute

    14 reviews

    This museum is small enough to completely cover in just a couple of hours and tries to be fun while focused on explaining science in unusual ways. Magnets, lights, trains, and perhaps the most popular exhibit is the 'walk-through' heart that walks you through the different chambers and pieces of the human heart. Lots of kids everywhere.

    Brilliant museum in the heart of Philadelphia. This is a world class museum rivaling those in Europe and elsewhere. Dr. Barnes amassed an unbelievable collection during the Great Depression as he sold his pharmaceutical company just before the crash. Monet, Renoir, Matisse, Modigliani, Van Gogh, Degas, Picasso and much much much more. Highly recommended for anyone from beginner to art ...
