Classic and Creative Philly
Always a draw for American history buffs (and Rocky fans), Philadelphia also has exceptional food, local craft beer and eclectic art to add to its long list of attractions.
With exclusive access and hands-on experiences curated by Urban Adventures and The New York Times, join us and explore several distinct Philly neighbourhoods and see the city through the eyes of a local guide. We'll try some of the city's best foods (hello cheesesteak!), visit the waterfront and enjoy a few drinks together too.
Discover Philadelphia’s creative uses for old spaces, including a public park on a formerly abandoned pier, a fringe arts center in a former water pumping station and a seasonal park made from shipping containers.
Walk through several neighbourhoods, from old to modern to revitalised, and discover their history, architecture and vibrant communities.
Explore a seasonal park on the Delaware River waterfront, either on a floating barge beer garden in the summer or cozied up next to a fire pit in the winter.
