Food and Philadelphia go hand in hand, so plan a day of fun, free activities to save up for food and drinks. Tour the historic district with a stop at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the newest addition, the Museum of the American Revolution. Most historic sites are free or pay what you wish, but be sure to check out seasonal discounts and lower rates based on age and service affiliation.
Swing by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and take a photo with the iconic Rocky statue and steps. Run up the steps like the Italian Stallion himself and take yourself through a guided tour of the museum. For yogis passing through on a Wednesday, enjoy a free yoga class in the art museum at 6 p.m. before dinner and drinks.
For a limited time, visitors enjoy the various pop-up activities all over the city. Be sure to check out the Blue Cross RiverRink during Winterfest along the waterfront. From now until March, the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest — Philadelphia’s largest outdoor ice skating rink — is open to the public complete with arcade games, pop-up bars, outdoor and indoor seating and boardwalk-style vendors and dining. Enjoy the lights, view and festive atmosphere while the season lasts.
