Day 1 - Philadelphia


Begin your romantic weekend with a horse-drawn carriage ride around Old City and Society Hill. The driver will give you a good summary of Philadelphia's history and historic sites, so you can avoid the tourist destinations on this romantic trip. Then take some time to wander around beautiful Society Hill and duck into some historic churches, like the Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church. Then head north to Old City, where you'll find Indigo Arts, a unique store of imports and art, and the Painted Bride Art Center. When you're ready to relax, stop in the Mexican Post for some excellent margaritas and nachos, as well as a raucous time (especially if it's happy hour time). Before dinner, make sure you pick up a bottle of wine, since the well-established Ralph's Italian Restaurant is a BYOB. After dinner, put on your dancing clothes and head to Silk City, one of the city's best places for good music and a fun crowd.

Day 2 - Philadelphia


If you're feeling well rested, this is the perfect day to walk through the city and see various neighborhoods as you go. Start out your day with a little history at the Edgar Allan Poe House. Then make your way to the Wash West neighborhood to see the Locks Gallery. Keep walking west (Spruce, Pine, and Locust Streets are beautiful most of the way, while Walnut offers high-end stores to tempt you) until you get to Rittenhouse Square. Here you can have some of the city's best coffee at La Colombe Torrefaction, and, if the weather is nice, enjoy some people-watching in the Square. Relax at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa Lounge, and then try a martini at Rouge (grab an outside table if you want to see and be seen). For dinner, head west again to one of the city's finest and most romantic restaurants, Friday Saturday Sunday. After dinner, continue your romantic evening at Tria, which offers a constantly changing selection of excellent wines, cheeses, and beers. If you don't know what to order here, use your bartenders: they know their stuff!
