If you're visiting Philly and enjoy exercising, it's mandatory to run up the Art Museum steps a la Rocky Balboa. But for a longer jog, take the nearby trail through Fairmount Park which runs along the Schuylkill River. You can ride a bike on the trail too (grab a Indego bike share), and there are plenty of spots for picnicking, watching university sculls on the water near Boathouse Row, or even fishing.

The LOVE artwork in the bedroom is there for a reason. Visit Robert Indiana's sculpture in John F. Kennedy Plaza, known generally as LOVE park. It's a place equally beloved by photographers and skaters.

This easily overlooked side-street is our nation's oldest residential street, with houses dating back to 1702. After a stroll through Elfreth's Alley, go across the street to Quarry Street, and zig-zag down Bread and Cherry Streets for a taste of 19th century post-industrial factories, preserved and re-purposed into homes and offices.
