Things to do!!!!

We love this place for a reason and hope you all get to see the sights while you’re in town. Below are some options (we may have dragged a lot of you on a few of these before but hopefully there’s something new for everyone):

Classic Fun for the Whole Family
Mutter Museum (let me know if you need tickets!) – Philly’s world famous medical museum/creep show. Skeletons, things in jars, giant colons, The Mutter has it all. And I work there!
The Philadelphia Zoo – Nice natural setting, animals abound, etc:
Philadelphia Museum of Art – Definitely one of the best around. If you haven’t been don’t miss it:
Independence Hall/Liberty Bell – The Hall and the Bell both sit in the oldest continuous residential neighborhood in the country (a UNESCO World Heritage Site!). Very evocative:
Italian Market – Everyone loves an outdoor market but the Italian Market has a vibe all it’s own. Fresh produce? Check. Live Birds? Check. Five for a dollar tube socks? Check. Check it out:
(Highly Recommended!) Smith Playground – I can’t say enough about this Playground/Play Mansion. If you have kids, go!:
Please Touch Museum – Another one for the kids over in Farimount Park:
Franklin Institute – The Franklin has good touring exhibits but they’re expensive. See what’s on before you go:

Outdoor Space
Fairmount Park – Super huge urban park that includes the river walks, a Japanese tea house, tons of other stuff:
Clark Park – If you haven’t been out to West Philly, check it out. Big Victorian houses, trees, and this beautiful park with a Saturday market:
Rittenhouse Square – Great park for a picnic and people watching in the middle of Center City:
Piazza at Schmidts – A great option near the wedding. Games on the giant screen, a farmer’s market, vendors, restuarants, etc.:


(Highly Recommended!) Magic Gardens – Indescribably strange and beautiful world of glass mosiac and cool junk:
Mural Arts Tour – We’re the city of murals and a trolley tour is a good way to see them:
Institute for Contemporary Arts – If you’re like us, you don’t mind your art modern:
Fabric Workshop – More modern stuff, see what’s on before you go:
Space 1026 – Same as above:

Keep checking back, we’ll add more as we think of it!
