HAVE A SOME TIME TO EXPLORE PHILLY? Want to spend it outside? We dug into our new travelstoke app to find the best spots for you.
Decorated with statues and architecture from the Guilded Age, this is by far Philadelphia’s fanciest park. I feel like Zelda Fitzgerald living here!
Reading Viaduct Park
Interesting that Google calls this a park… It’s not a park yet. It’s the abandoned Reading train track, an elevated railway system that cuts through the northern part of Center City. Nature has reclaimed most of the structures up there. See it in its glory before the city cleans it up and turns it into a Highline Park.
Penn’s Landing Square
Penns Landing transforms every season into a new pop up park. There are local artists selling their work, food trucks, beer stands, hammocks to lounge about it, and an arcade.
Wissahickon Valley Park
I bet you didn’t know you can get lost in nature in Philadelphia. Philadelphia has one of the largest parks within a city. Wissahickon Valley is part of the larger Fairmount Park. Along the trail you’ll find statues, old bridges, dams, waterfalls, a great spots to go bouldering.
Independence Beer Garden
Grab a drink of cold craft beer on a beautiful day after a few laps around Independence Park.
