Check out the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A surprising sampling of arts from young American painting to modern expositions, from Italian Renaissance (even Giotto's period) to incredible reconstructions (original!) of an Indian temple or a Chinese imperial house, from Middle Age weapons to many important impressionist paintings (Monet, Cezanne, Matisse, van Gogh, ...). Thanks Cara for the beautiful tour.
Mountain Biking in Hidden Drive Fairmount Park. Ofcourse you can find somewhere better but its only 5minutes from my house. Inline skating along Kelly Drive also Fairmount Park.
Love spending my free time at the park. Great view of the skyline. Nice breeze off the river. Absolutely fantastic Architecture.
Philadelphia museum of art is a nice area to get away from it all and is only a short walk from centre city. ( more to follow)
Wonderful museum. Beautiful architecture and a really set of paintings. The park outside is also great, which will make even more pleasant the few hours you will spend in the surroundings.
See some culture at the Museum of Art. Ugh - did not get to see the Dali exhibition since tickets were sold out in advance.
So Rob says to go to Figueres and Cadaques in Spain... roadtrip :)
Hey it's a touristy thing to do but recreate the scene in the Rocky movie of running up the steps of the Museum of Art. Yo, Adriaaaaannne....
The Philly Art Museum is sooo much more than Rocky running up its steps. Go and see why. Even if you don't have the time to go inside, the building itself is beautiful.
Visit the Art Museum. They have a year-long display program. Last year, they had the Van Gogh Exhibit. Pretty cool!
Behind the Art Museum there is a small gazebo where you can stand from there and see the falls of the river that runs through Fairmount Park.
Here is a secret. If you go before 12:00 on Sunday morning, it is donation only, you can give $1.00 and go in. Art is for everyone in Philadelphia.
A beautiful building with an outstanding art collection. The steps on the east side of the building is where Sylvester Stallone ran up and did a victory dance in the first of the 'Rocky' films.
