World renowned collection of art and artifacts and home to the Famous Rocky Steps and Rocky Statue. Absolutely not to be missed!!
“Besides the spectacular architecture of the building and the zen grounds that surround it, The Barnes in Philadelphia is home to one of the world's greatest collections of impressionist, post-impressionist, and early modernist paintings.”
“Founded in honor of America’s first scientist, Benjamin Franklin, The Franklin Institute is one of the oldest and premier centers of science education and development in the country. Great exhibits for children and adults to enjoy!”
“A great place for locals and visitors, especially if the weather is bad out. An overwhelming selection of food stands and restaurants, mixed in with shops along with produce and butchers, fishmongers, and other sources for a great home cooked meal. On Saturdays the Amish bring their goods as well. Prepare to spend a few hours here, and come hungry! On top of that Chinatown is across the street, if you're in the mood for asian food. Not just Chinese, but Japanese, Korean, and Burmese as well.”
“One of history's most famous symbols of freedom and justice is a must-see when in the city! Surrounded by other historic monuments and sights which makes it an easy day trip!”
“Largest of four city parks offering great shopping (off Walnut street) and dining options. Pop into Parc for a bite and a cocktail at Steven Starr's flagship Art deco-inspired French Eatery (18th/Locust). Or simply sit on a park bench and enjoy people-watching (and puppy-watching). Grab a book at Joseph Fox's Bookstore (Walnut/17th) and settle into La Colombe (Walnut/19th) for an unforgettable cup of coffee.”
