Walking tours of Philly
There are so many exciting things to see in the ‘city of brotherly love,’ but often, the best way to experience them is to do so by foot. There are fun romantic tours for every taste, but one of the most recommended is ‘Urban Adventures. Depending on the mood you’re in, you can explore the neighborhood and check out locations relevant to Philadelphia’s key part in American history (for it is here that the nation’s founding fathers originally met to plan the revolution to gain freedom from the British Empire in the late 18th century). If you would rather stick to the modern era, an alternative tour will take you straight to the 9th Street Italian Market, where you can savor various mouth-watering Mediterranean dishes.
Running southeast to northwest diagonally through Philadelphia, the Schuykill River is one of this region's most notable landmarks. During the daylight hours, you can head over to boathouses and soak up some of the city's aquatic history. Each of these boathouses has a unique heritage, while one of them, the Sedgeley Club, is also responsible for running the Lighthouse on Turtle Rock. Open to the public, you and your partner can marvel at the latter's hexagonal lantern room and brave the walkway around this structure. The views over the surrounding area from this 9.1-meter tower are memorable. The setting becomes even more magical and romantic when the sun dips and the waterfront's myriad lights come on.
Philadelphia’s largest municipal park is well worth a visit (depending on the weather, along with a well-stocked picnic hamper!) Stretching for 830 hectares, there are ample places to take a seat and escape the urban hustle and bustle. One of the most popular aspects of this park is the so-called Whispering Benches. This weird phenomenon would be a highlight of your visit. If you were to sit at one end and your partner at the other, you would still be able to communicate effectively. The scientific explanation? Something to do with the wind direction plotted against the long curve of the stone bench. The romantic explanation? This park forms the perfect backdrop for lovers wishing to whisper sweet nothings.
Any couple seeking somewhere to get to know each other better should book a table for a meal. There are so many wonderful places, and the most difficult decision is wondering where to start! How about Kensington Quarters? Located in Philly's renowned 'Fishtown,' anyone who loves seafood will find their taste buds tantalized by the menu choices. A typical platter would offer everything from poached mussels, clams, shrimps, and oysters to the chef's specials. How does tuna bolognese sound, served with gremolata, fettuccine, and pork? Or Squid ink chitarri with pecorino, marjoram and pancetta? Wood-fired scallops? Any of these dishes would satisfy your cravings for fresh Pennsylvania seafood – and won’t break the bank either!
