18 Things Everyone In Philadelphia Must Do Before They Die

Philadelphia is one of the largest cities in the country, so there’s no excuse to be bored here! Whether you grew up here, moved here for school and never left, or are brand new to our warm and welcoming city, I bet you’re discovering new things hiding in Philly every day. Of course, the classics can’t be ignored, and thinking through the best things to do in Philadelphia has led to create this Philly bucket list. How many can you say you have checked off?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

I’m proud to say that of all of these things to do in Philadelphia, I only have two more to check off of my bucket list: an Eagles Game and the Zoo Balloon! Maybe I can get over my fear of heights in the nosebleeds at the Linc, and then head on up the Schuylkill for a great view.

Which of these Philadelphia experiences is your favorite? How many have you yet to cross off your list?
