Philadelphia, PA - If you’re single and seeking a partner, have you considered going online? Perhaps you’re contemplating a weekend break to somewhere exciting - like Philadelphia? To find your perfect traveling companion for a romantic excursion, your best bet would be to sign up for a digital dating service. If you'd love to meet someone older, opt to register with a dating website for cougars. These outlets make it so easy to track down kindred spirits. You’ll soon be making meaningful connections. Here are five Philadelphia places you must visit to inspire your search for someone interesting.
Pine Creek Gorge
Our first suggestion is some way outside Philadelphia, but as romantic locations go, it oozes charm and class. Pine Creek Gorge is just over three hour drive away – in USA terms, that's no great distance at all. But the journey is worth it as this 50-mile long, 1,000-feet deep ravine is sometimes referred to as Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon. The best time of year to visit is in The Fall when the trees are ablaze with color, ranging from reds to yellows. There are trails through this verdant scenery and plenty of lofty vantage points where you and your partner can soak up the beautiful sights.
Dining is always a surefire method of kindling romance. Head over to 736 South 9th Street to Angelo's, and you'll discover a menu including cheesesteaks and sumptuous Philly pizzas. To taste a ribeye steak shredded like confetti or the selection of cheeses available as toppings is to treat your taste buds to a sensation they won't forget in a hurry! You can wash your main course down with cocktails, beers or wines, or if you’d rather keep a clear head for the remainder of your getaway, a choice of soft drinks.
Sly Fox Brewery and Tastin’ Room
Located at Pottstown Airport Business Center in the city's Pottstown neighborhood, this charming venue is perfect for whetting your appetite. There's a wide selection of beers for your to savor, from American light ales to an incredible array of German pilsners and lagers paying homage to Pennsylvania's rich European heritage. With a choice of indoor or outdoor dining and an extensive take-out menu, your taste buds will be tantalized. Depending on when you visit, special deals are on offer. Tuesdays, starters are half-price, and there’s a happy hour for beers. Thursdays, you can get refills on selected drinks and the opportunity to create your own Quesadilla. You’ll soon be feeling amorous.
Lancaster Balloon Rides
For a truly romantic Philly excursion, how does a sedate hot air balloon ride over the city and surrounding sound? Under the supervision of an experienced pilot, you can rise into the skies and then enjoy an unforgettable two-hour cruise above beautiful landscapes. After your flight, champagne will be served as you come gently back down to terra firma. One caution note is to pay close attention to the weather forecast, as the balloon ride won’t happen if there’s any likelihood of storms or high winds. If you’re in any doubt, give the booking agency a call.
Philadelphia is inextricably linked with the birth of the Republic, playing a pivotal role in the American colonies shaking off their Imperial British yoke. But the city offers an even more historic activity, connected with even older European explorers (the Vikings), not to mention the Native Americans who've been living on this continent for millennia. Axe-wielding is a fun way to exert energy and allow you to develop an unusual skill. Located on E Boston Street, you can BYOB, although refreshments are provided.
