Philadelphia Winter Activities Make for a Lifetime of Memories
by The Traveler

Philadelphia, a friendly city rich in architectural and historical significance, is a popular tourist destination for visitors from all over the world. The winter months make some of the best times to visit; although it may be chilly outside, the crowds are smaller and the hospitality is warmer.

The top winter travel picks include getting a pampering treatment at an upscale luxury day spa, delighting in a hot cocoa and freshly made pastry at a quaint café, living la dolce vita in a luxury Center City suite at the Rittenhouse Hotel while being lavished in luxury, or visiting one of the city’s many museums or historical sites like Independence Hall, Franklin Institute, and the Old Arts District.

Much of the best attractions in Philadelphia are within walking distance to one another, making it the perfect place for carefree sightseeing - whatever the time of year. The pond at Penn’s Landing offers the perfect place for outdoor family ice skating adventures, while South Street with its lively atmosphere, hip attitude, and more than 300 unique shops, restaurants, and nightclubs ranging from popular favorites to one-of-a-kind places, is always an experience for visitors and locals alike. For one of the most exclusive fine dining experiences in the city, Le Bec-Fin on Walnut Street is a must. Zanzibar Blue, perhaps the hottest jazz club in town, is a must for all music aficionados.

There are hotels suited to every traveler’s individual tastes and budget. From luxurious five-star hotel suites catering to guests’ every need to a clean place to sleep after a night on the town, visitors will be more than pleased with their Philadelphia getaway.

Until next time, Happy Travels!
