Some of you may or may not know that I went to undergrad in Philadelphia. It’s one of my favorite cities. There are always fun activities, and there are SO many great restaurants. A lot of my friends from NJ hardly get out to Philadelphia (even though it’s just as close to us as NYC). In hopes that more of my NJ friends might consider a visit to Philadelphia, here are my Top 5 things to do in Philly this summer!
Go to a Phillies Game
Phillies games are so fun. And so much cheaper than seeing a NYC game. The park is amazing, there’s not a bad view in the house. And if you haven’t had Chickie’s and Pete’s crab fries, they are a MUST.
Visit a Museum
Philly has a ton of museums. Many of them you can even visit for free! Click here for more information.
My personal favorite is the Philadelphia Art Museum. Head there to see the art, and recreate the famed “Rocky” scene.
Dine at a Restaurant
A couple of my favorite Philadelphia restaurants are Le Peg and Amada, but there are literally a million fantastic restaurants in the city.

Philly is a great place to get outside! The city is lined with parks, and of course is on the water. They’ve done a great job of utilizing their outdoor space for summer activities. Here are a few places to visit: Spruce Street Harbor Park, Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, Parks on Tap, The Rail Park.
Views of the City
If you want to see some amazing views of the city, I suggest you head to One Liberty Observation Deck, or to another one of my favorite restaurants R2L.
