1. Visit the Art Museum.
Placed at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and overlooking the city skyline, the Philadelphia Art Museum is more than just a museum. It’s a center of city life. Not to mention being a gorgeous ode to European architecture. And finally not to mention, the beautiful art inside. If you feel up for it, you might even try running up the steps. Neighboring museums like the Barnes Foundation and Franklin Institute are also options, and if you’ve got little ones then a short drive will get you to the interactive playground known as the Please Touch Museum: a must do.
