Romantic Things to Do with That Special Someone in Philadelphia



The city of Philadelphia offers so much to see and do. When it comes time to take that special someone out on the town, however, it can be hard to choose just the right activity. Would something that simply involves spectating be best, or is actively participating in the entertainment more of a treat? Would something a bit more exciting fit the bill, or is an evening featuring a more laid back and quiet activity best? Fortunately, 10 Best delivers on choices for any style activities so that romance can blossom in the way that feels the most natural and fun. Spend some time at the Rodin Museum gazing at the sculptures. Take a slow, romantic stroll through Fairmount Park and bring a picnic lunch. Visit South Street's Magic Gardens or Snap a photo at LOVE Park. The City of Brotherly Love offers great options for that first date activity, or for the couple that's been around the block a few times and is looking for something new to do. Choose an active activity, or enjoy a show or play or musical performance while in town. Spend the day, the night, or longer and perhaps even do more than one activity here.
