Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia is associated with countless things, from the Liberty Bell and cheesesteaks to Rocky and the Mummers. It is also home to architectural marvels, more than a dozen museums, hundreds of thousands of pieces of artwork, and some of the most beautiful urban landscapes in the world. The City of Brotherly Love is also rated one of the most romantic locations in the country, making it the perfect place for a romantic urban engagement. From the rooftop views of Cira Green and the arty ambiance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the spectacular views offered by City Hall’s observation deck, here’s a closer look at three of the top urban proposal spots around the city.
Embrace the Views of Cira Green
If you want to pop the question in a beautiful urban setting with magnificent views to boot, Cira Green should be at the top of your list of spots to consider. The urban park, which measures approximately an acre in size, is situated on top of a parking garage in University City. The city skyline and nearby river serve as an enchanting backdrop at any time of the day, although the view is particularly impressive at sunset. Apart from the views, Cira Green also offers visitors access to a beautiful, breezy lounge space, food, and entertainment. The park also serves as the venue for a variety of events ranging from movie screenings to music festivals, creating the perfect setting for a very special engagement.
Pop the Question at an Arty Location
Another gorgeous urban spot to consider for your proposal is the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Perhaps best known for being home to the ‘Rocky Steps’ (as a result of a scene from the 1976 hit film Rocky), the beautiful building is rated among the top proposal spots in the city. There are many places in the vicinity of the museum to choose from, such as a specific spot behind the main building that offers a beautiful view of Boathouse Row. While the museum is the perfect setting for any type of proposal, the iconic location is especially suited to super-romantic proposals, complete with formal clothing and a flashy ring. In fact, where better to pop the question with a handcrafted ring design that illustrates your love than at one of the most romantic locations in the city?
The City Hall Observation Deck is a Special Place
There aren’t many locations across the city that represent the heart of Philadelphia better than City Hall. The Observation deck offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape (including the Benjamin Franklin Parkway) from almost 550 feet above the ground. Despite being a rather busy tourist attraction, the Observation Deck, which is the largest open-air deck in the city, is perfectly suited for a weekday proposal. During off-peak season, couples may actually enjoy some privacy thanks to a vintage elevator that can only accommodate four people at a time and a timed ticketing system.
Philadelphia is a city filled with beauty and intrigue. It is also home to many beautiful locations that are perfect for a romantic, urban wedding proposal.
