What to See in Philadelphia


There is so much to see and do in Philadelphia!  I started walking towards the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Boathouse Row.  This domino sculpture is pretty cool!  I like it sometimes when there is someone in my photo, because they become an actor…like in this photo…it’s almost seems this lady was posing for me!

There was a Mass, but I discreetly snapped a photo.

Philadelphia is a wonderful City for bicycling.  These green paths are designated biking lanes…

The Rodin Museum is lovely and is one of the sites of “The Thinker” sculpture.

It’s also the site of the iconic “Rocky steps“.  You  can see this little girl doing the “Rocky” celebration, after having ran up the steps!

I’ve seen photos of Boathouse Row at night when it’s all lit up.  I wasn’t able to go at night, but it was still lovely!

There’s much more of Philly to explore…see you tomorrow!

    • All Cities should have them! I haven’t found the eateries yet. It’s been a whirlwind! In fact today, I’m not sight-seeing because I need to rest and am going to a rooftop party tonight.

  2. Just have to correct — it’s the Philadelphia Museum of Art … not the Museum of Modern Art … sorry! But it’s such an historic building and has such incredible collections of EVERYTHING (you have to see the modern sculptures by Brancusi & Giacometti) — including amazing furniture and silver from Revolutionary times … anyhow! Boathouse Row is just the beginning of East & West River Drive which runs down to Fairmount Park, which is also gorgeous. THANKS for sharing your beautiful photos!!

  3. I was expecting a photo of the famous Liberty Bell – and I didn’t know that the Rocky movie was filmed in Philadelphia. That fountain is the Swann Memorial Fountain -thanks for bringing great memories back. Great gallery as always, wouldn’t expect anything else from you. Have a great stay.
