    Philly From the Top

     

    Ever wonder what Philly looks like from 57 floors up? Well now's your chance! Since it's inception in November 2015, the One Liberty Observation Deck, located in the city's beloved Liberty Place building, has become a city top spot (literally!). Marvel over the birds-eye views of the city's famed skyline, and explore some of the interactive exhibits. The observation deck is closed, so it's open all year long, rain or shine. It's also still technically outdoors. We think.

    Schuykill River Trail

     

    Named the Best Urban Trail in USA Today's Reader's Choice contest, the Schkuykill River Trail has been consistently one of the city's premier attractions. Spanning almost 130 miles with a route stretching from Parkerford to Philadelphia, the River Trail is a must do for everyone in the city (at least once!). If walking, running, jogging, or any other mode of manual leg transit is your thing, then consider spending your winter afternoons here soaking in scenery with the city's beautiful Schuykill River as the backdrop.
