As in most major cities, there is no shortage of romantic things to do in Philadelphia. You can get out on the water with American Sailing Tours, which features the 48-foot Summer Wind, the only Chinese Junk-rigged schooner available for public sail in North America. The incredible botanical site currently known as Longwood Gardens began as a modest Quaker farm in the 1700s. Wissahickon Woods is one of the most beautiful parts of Fairmount Park, as the woods extend along Wissahickon Creek, which feeds into the Schuylkill River. Adventure Aquarium is seriously cool. The expansive facility has hippos you can watch bob for heads of lettuce, stingrays to touch in open tanks, jellyfish that morph before your eyes, performing penguins, and cavorting seals. Philadelphia is a place where independence is still highly valued, so fashion your own itinerary of romantic things to do here in the city like no other.
