Things to Do Beyond Landscaping Philly
Which U.S. city has the most outdoor sculptures and murals in the country? It's the same city that was first to have a library, hospital, stock exchange, business school, and medical school. The City of Brotherly Love has major bragging rights.
Founded to be more of a rural town designed for orchards and gardens, it wasn't long before those flocking to the new colony helped it grow into a city. With such a long history, tied to much of America's past, there is no shortage of things to do.
Most people know about the usual places to visit such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, but how about the other treasures? For example, ever visit to the medical oddities Mutter Museum? It features the brain of Albert Einstein, the skeleton of the tallest man on record, a collection of 2,000 things pulled from people's throats, and other medical anomalies.
Philly is also home to the Blue Horizon boxing venue. You may have seen it in the movie "Rocky V." Edger Allen Poe stayed on North 7th St in Philadelphia for a year. It was there the famed author wrote "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Gold Bug." The museum houses three permanent exhibits and 2 rotating ones.
While out and about investigating off-the-beaten-path attractions, visit the oldest tavern in Philadelphia. McGillin's Olde Ale House opened in 1860 and continues to serve authentic 18th-century recipes.
