Philadelphia Museum of Art
Back in September my friend Gemma was visiting from Majorca and we'd previously talked about visiting either Philadelphia or Boston as neither of us had been before. We decided on Philly and had a fantastic day exploring the city. By train, Philadelphia is only 2.5 hours from NYC so it makes a nice day trip. The city itself is a very pretty and culture-rich one. As you'll see from my photos, there is a lot of artwork and murals on buildings. We visited the 'Rocky Steps' which are the 72 stone steps before the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which appeared in Rocky and its 4 sequels. We also saw Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Philadelphia has four centuries of history and architecture as well as beautiful neighborhoods and great dining options. Of course, our first visit to Philadelphia wouldn't have been complete without a Philly Cheese Steak for lunch. We also saw the Magic Gardens, which is a mosaic visionary art environment, dedicated to preserving the art of Isaiah Zagar. The site features a massive mosaic sculpture garden that spans half a block of the famous South Street. I had never seen anything like it and I definitely recommend going if you're planning a trip to Philly.
