Located a short walk up the street in the famous Italian Market, this is one of the best places for brunch (and great for dinner, too!) A hip little spot with great food and great prices, seasonal outdoor seating, and plenty of vegetarian and vegan options (and their delicious desserts are made by Sabrina's grandmom!) Definitely check it out if you're in the Italian Market! Tip: they get busy on weekends for brunch so be prepared for some waiting time. http://sabrinascafe.com/

Black N Brew is an LGBT-run, cute and hip little breakfast/coffee shop just one block from the studio, at the end of Cross street on East Passyunk. It gets busy on weekends and early mornings, but it's a decent place to get some good breakfast/brunch food, some coffee, or a good bagel if you're looking to stay local. Sometimes the service can be quite slow (depending upon the time you're there) but it's also the closest breakfast spot to the studio and they offer Veg/Vegan options on the menu. Very friendly staff.

The Bottle Shop is a neat little place on the avenue where you can get take-away American and Imported craft beers - either single beers, six-packs, or mix-a-six packs you can choose yourself to try different beers. They also have six rotating taps in-house (and some light snacks if you like, to go with your beer), and you can get growlers to take with you. It's a little on the pricier side, but definitely worth checking out if you like beer! http://bottleshopbeer.com/

The subway is just under 5 blocks away. The Tasker/Morris station runs north and south, with connections at City Hall for east and westbound trains. Very convenient!
Bike rentals are cheap and easy with Indego; the closest dock is just around the corner from the Acme, at 11th & Reed - about 3 blocks from the studio. New stations are popping up all the time - check out the map here: https://www.rideindego.com/stations/ Rentals go from $4 per 1/2 hour for walk-up rentals, and $4/hour if you buy a pass. There are tons of docking stations around the city, and it's a super easy, convenient, and GREEN option for getting around the city. Philly has also spent the last several years adding more bike lanes and increasing safety for cyclists throughout the city to make this town even more bike-friendly. https://www.rideindego.com/

South Fellini is just around the corner, a few store fronts down from the P.O.P.E. It's a neat little hipster shop run by friends of mine who are local film, comic book and printing artists, and offers hip and unique Philly-centric t-shirts, pins, and more. It's definitely worth checking out, especially if you're looking for something cool to take home from your visit to Philly for yourself or a friend. http://www.southfellini.com/

Parks & Nature
This is one of the newest gems in the city! They've revamped the area along the Schuylkill River into a recreational riverside green space, which stretches from 25th & Spruce to past the Philadelphia Art Museum. It boasts a vast stretch of trails for walking, running, biking and rollerblading, with picnic tables and benches right by the water. The park begins with 2 super-fun dog parks (I love to go and just watch the dogs play from the bridge!), and along the trail you'll pass by Philly's historic Boathouse Row, tons of outdoor sculptures and statues, and a skate park. If you want to have some lovely outdoor fun, this is a fantastic place to go and one of the best in the city!

This is an awesome place! Located on the waterfront, there's a large open park with multiple hammocks, and hanging lights year-round. Go to stroll and people-watch, have a drink on a floating dock, play some arcade games or just chill out. There are multiple little stands for food, and it's both date and family friendly! http://www.delawareriverwaterfront.com/places/spruce-street-harbor-park

Franklin Square is one of the five original open-space parks planned by William Penn when he laid out the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682. Centered around its beautiful fountain, it also features the Parx Liberty Carousel, the one-of-a-kind Philly Mini Golf course, and the renowned SquareBurger, as well as periodic, seasonal park-wide exhibits. It's for both locals and tourists alike, and a fun place to experience! http://www.historicphiladelphia.org/franklin-square/what-to-see/
