    Philly From the Top

     

    Ever wonder what Philly looks like from 57 floors up? Well now's your chance! Since it's inception in November 2015, the One Liberty Observation Deck, located in the city's beloved Liberty Place building, has become a city top spot (literally!). Marvel over the birds-eye views of the city's famed skyline, and explore some of the interactive exhibits. The observation deck is closed, so it's open all year long, rain or shine. It's also still technically outdoors. We think.

    Museum Without Walls: Audio Tour

     

    Learn about the city's extensive public artwork through this free audio tour. Accessible for free via mobile app, cell phone or download, the city's sculptures are bought to life by the people who were there. Narrated by the "authentic voice" of a person who is connected to the art by knowledge or experience, Museum Without Walls will definitely paint the city in a new light. Completely free and self guided, there's no reason not to take a walk through the city's rich history.

    Schuykill River Trail

     

    Named the Best Urban Trail in USA Today's Reader's Choice contest, the Schkuykill River Trail has been consistently one of the city's premier attractions. Spanning almost 130 miles with a route stretching from Parkerford to Philadelphia, the River Trail is a must do for everyone in the city (at least once!). If walking, running, jogging, or any other mode of manual leg transit is your thing, then consider spending your winter afternoons here soaking in scenery with the city's beautiful Schuykill River as the backdrop.

    First Friday Philadelphia

     

    On the first Friday of each month, the streets of Old City flood with local residents soaking up the art scene. Started by the Old City Arts Association in 1991 to showcase the up and coming neighborhood, now, Old City's First Fridays are an exciting monthly tradition. Take a night out and explore all that the Old City art scene has to offer, as the galleries and shops open their doors and host a variety of events.
