Celebrating Father's Day in Philadelphia: What To Do


See The Historic Spots

Philadelphia is perhaps the most historic city in the United States. This is essentially the country's birthplace. And if your dad is a history buff, he'll love going to all the historic spots located in the various districts of Philadelphia. There's the famous Independence Hall, for example, which is where the forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence. The President's House, on the other hand, was once the residence of George Washing, the first president of the US. And there's also Betsy Ross, home of the purported site where the American flag was first made.

Check Out The Penn Museum

If you and your dad are interested in natural history, visiting Penn Museum ought to be part of your Father's Day Weekend itinerary here. Serving as the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for the University of Pennsylvania, arguably the most prestigious school in Philadelphia, this place shows you practically everything you need to learn about the planet. From the earliest civilizations to the most fascinating places in the world, you can peruse the museum for the entire day and it'd still be a day well-spent! And there's no doubt your dad will enjoy every second of it!

Visit The Barnes Foundation

What if your old man is more into art? Philadelphia isn't exactly known for its creative fields. New York and LA, sure, but Philly? Well, even if the art scene here isn't as big as those in the aforementioned cities, there's still the Barnes Foundation. Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this museum houses the massive art collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes. Though best known in the medical field, his $25 billion-dollar art collection is truly impressive. It includes works by the likes of Van Gogh, Monet, and more. What's not to love?

Run Up to The Philadelphia Museum of Art

There's no way your dad doesn't know about Rocky Films. Starring Silvester Stallone, these were some of the finest movies ever made. Your old man has likely even seen it a few times too. And if he's a fan, you shouldn't miss going to the famous “Rocky Steps” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This is the exact staircase that Rocky climbed in what is perhaps the most beloved training montage in film history. No Rocky fan or self-professed cinephile should overlook going here in person. If you want, you can even exercise here just like Rocky did all those years ago!

Eat Some Philly Cheesesteak

In terms of what to eat, you can't go to Philly and not try their famous cheesesteak. It's more of a snack than a signature dish but boy, is it good! You and your old man can spend an entire day in Philadelphia just eating as many Philly Cheesesteaks as you can. It is pretty light, after all. Made up of thinly sliced beef placed between two slices of hoagie bread and coated with melted cheese, it's hearty but just one won't make you full. And when you do try ones from different places, try to see which of them has the best. It's practically become a pastime!

Drink Some Local Craft Beer

Do you know what would hit the spot after eating lots of Philly Cheesesteak? Or perhaps paired with the city's signature delicacy? Some craft beer! Picture: you and your dad hanging out in the middle of the night. On one hand, there's the famous sandwich in all its cheesy glory. And on the other is a glass full of locally crafted beer. Doesn't that sound like a good time? Fortunately, you can do just that in various hotspots throughout the city. But arguably the best place for it is Cherry Street Pier. With great views and great booze, you're in for an awesome time!
