This week, we’re heading to the City of Brotherly Love — Philadelphia. The city of Brotherly Love has plenty of spots where relationships can grow in love and truly thrive. From the intriguing old city, to the foodie central in the reading terminal; whatever coupling dynamic you have, there is something here for you!
Here are our top picks for couples in Philly.
Philadelphia is The United States’ first capital city, and is filled with a rich history. Philly has the famous liberty bell, and enchanting cobblestone streets that our founding fathers walked on. For all the history buffs, head to Old City for a romantic adventure! You can get a Friday night horse carriage ride, and pose for pictures at the city’s many historical monuments. You both can stop by the Museum of the American Revolution, or even chill at Betsy Ross’ house. With Old City, you can educate yourself on the birthplace of our nation while sharing fun moments together.
Spruce Street Harbor Park
It’s almost summertime, and Philadelphia’s own Spruce Street Harbor Park is the very perfect setting for your summertime love to blossom. From delicious water ice, to a breathtaking Ferris Wheel, boats, and relaxing hammocks; the park has everything you need for an urban getaway. It’s a cross between a Carnival and a boardwalk, with great eats and entertainment scattered around the neighborhood. If you’re in the Philly area, put this on your list. You can unleash your inner child with your partner, and enjoy some summertime fun.
Cira Green is a beautiful rooftop park located right next to Philadelphia’s famous 30th Street Station. It’s the perfect place to grab a blanket and relax, while taking in breathtaking views of the Schuylkill River. If you want the urban park experience, altitude and all (it’s over 10,000 feet in the air), then this is a place you should try. The space beneath the park is filled with some great restaurants and bars for your leisure. Grab a blanket and get ready for some urban park life.
Nestled in South Philadelphia, the magic gardens are a nonprofit arts foundation with an open exhibit that has attracted visitors from all over the country. The murals were founded by Isaiah Zagar, who had a very unique eye for mosaics and artistic activism. The Magic Gardens group hosts guided tours, where you can learn more about the history of the display and the meaning behind many of the striking pieces. If you and your partner love art and the outdoors, then this is a good place to schedule a tour for an evening date.
Some couples look forward to date night for the experiences, and others look forward to the delicious food. If you and your partner are serious foodies, look no further than the Reading Terminal Market. This historical market contains some of Philadelphia’s finest food vendors, all in one location. You can try a variety of foods, shop for homemade goods, and enjoy the diverse smells and delicious aromas that fill the air. Eating together is one of life’s greatest joys. This summer, make some time to enjoy a meal (or two) at Reading Terminal.
As the smell of flowers and the sounds of birds chirping fill the air, we can’t forget about the great outdoors. The Wissahickon Valley is a great place to jog together, ride your bikes or even take a nice stroll. It’s one of the lushest greenspaces in the Philadelphia region. If you are fond of the outdoors and wouldn’t mind a long bike ride or hike, then this should be on your list. Give your partner the gift of a couple’s exercise, nature, and quality time together.
With these picks, your relationship will never be faced with a dull moment or at a loss for joy. To all our Philly couples, it’s getting warm outside. Time to head out and explore what the City of Brotherly Love can do for the love in your life.
