The publication asserts, “there’s really something special about Philadelphia,” citing the city’s parks, food and incomparable public art.

Explore our museums and galleries – indoor and out. Hear exceptional music or discover something altogether new. Whatever you want to do, Philadelphia is here to inspire the art lover in you.
