Outside views of Philadelphia, PA

I spent four days in the eminently walkable, artsy and sophisticated city of Philadelphia. It boasts great museums, albeit not free ones, and the Museum of Art has the ‘Rocky Steps’ (that is, the steps up which Rocky ran in the film, like).

Day 1; walking from the station to Apple Hostels, then to the waterfront and finding happy hour in the Olde Bar.

Philadelphia is also the ‘home’ of independence, hosting the building in which both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed. Visiting Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell is free. The former needs you to collect a timed ticket from the Independence Visitor Centre (which is a shortish walk away, but not right next door). On day 2, we visited both of those places.

Day 3. Love Park, sculptures and statues.

Day 4. Docks, museums and Boathouse Row.
