Best Free Activities and Locales in Philly



Description:

There are plenty of things to see and do in Philadelphia without spending a penny. Chill out in Valley Forge National Historic Park or Independence National Historical Park, taking in the nation's history (and perhaps catching snippets of a tour!). Check listings to see if Rittenhouse Square has any special events scheduled, like the Flower Market in the spring or the biannual Fine Art Show. For music, the Kimmel Center frequently offers free performances in its spacious lobby; students at the Curtis Institute and Temple's Esther Boyer College of Music will also give you a satisfying performance.
