Spring Break is just around the corner and I cannot wait for it. Personally I will be in my bed watching Netflix & Hulu, but if you are looking for things to do, no worries here is a list of things to do in Philly!
NEIGHBORHOODS TO VISIT
Top 2 in Philly:
A few blocks from Suburban Station, this street is filled with a lot of interesting shops, great restaurants, and the impressive Magic Gardens. You can keep on walking down and end up in Penn’s Landing, where you can go ice skating on The Lodge at Waterfront Winterland. Afterwards you can go to The Franklin Fountain and enjoy their delicious floats and/or freshly made ice creams.
Get off on Market East Station and walk two blocks down into Chinatown! You have the option of eating Chinese, Vietnamese, Burmese, etc. My favorite restaurant is Rangoon, which serves great Burmese food. You’ll order ten of their Thousand Layer Cakes. After that you can pass by Tea Do and try out one of their delicious Bubble Teas!
