Rocky Steps 

Philadelphia is a great historical, cultural and artistic center in the United States. Best known for its variety of museums, especially the Philadelphia Museum of Art created in 1876 and also regarded for its entrance stairs, the famous Rocky Steps. This entry became a worldwide attraction after their appearance in the 1976 film Rocky.

Mejor conocido por su variedad de museos, en especial el Museo de Arte de Filadelfia creado en 1876 y mejor conocido por su largo tramo de escalones (Rocky Steps), está entrada se hizo famosa después de la película Rocky en el 1976.

Note: Don’t forget to recreate Rocky's scene, by running up the stairs. So worth it!
Address: Spring Garden St, Philadelphia, PA 19130, United States

The Franklin Fountain

There’s not much to said about Franklin Ice Cream, other than they have amazing flavors and sweets, the parlor has a retro vibe, the staff wears a bow tie and they served the Ice cream in Chinese takeout boxes. Can you ask for more?

No hay mucho que decir de Franklin Ice Cream, solo que tienen increíbles sabores y dulces, el lugar tiene un ambiente retro, el personal usa corbata de lazo  y sirven el mantecado en cajas para llevar estilo chino. ¿Puedes pedir más?

Note: Try the Mt. Vesuvius Ice Cream. So good!

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

This gallery was created by artist Isaiah Zagar, following his passion for mosaic. In 1994 he began building what is now known as Magic Gardens. It has interior spaces where works of artists from around the world are exhibited and special activities are performed. However, the main attraction is the outdoor labyrinth where you can find all kinds of unusual materials, colors, and figures.

Mac Mart

If your cheese obsesses –like me- this place will not disappoint you. From creamy mac & cheese topped with buttery herb and garlic lobster meat, to grilled cheese stuffed mac & cheese… Mac Mart is definitely ‘Not your Mama’s Mac.’

Si estás obsesionado con el queso -como yo- esté lugar no te decepcionará. Desde cremoso macarrones con queso cubierto con mantequilla de ajo y carne de langosta, hasta emparedados de queso (Grilled Cheese) rellenos de macarrones con queso... Mac Mart definitivamente se caracteriza por sus platos fuera de lo común. 

Note: Try anything from the menu… hands down it will be good.
Address: 104 S 18th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103, United States

Philadelphia Terminal Market

This is your indoor farmer's market to the next level. You will find locally grown produce, Amish specialties, fresh meats and seafood, spices, a variety of handmade desserts, shops, local and international restaurants… everything you need in one place. Your only issue will be choosing where to eat.

Esté es tu mercado de agricultores a otro nivel. Encontrarás productos cultivados localmente, especialidades Amish, carnes y mariscos frescos, especias, variedad de postres artesanales, tiendas, restaurantes locales e internacionales... todo lo que buscas en un solo lugar. Tu único problema será elegir dónde comer.

Note: Visit Bailer’s Donuts and try some authentic homemade Pennsylvania Dutch doughnuts. This place has up to 40 varieties, including the famous maple-bacon covered and fruity flakes. Also, Beiler’s Bakery is across the aisle, I recommend the apple-nut pie.
