Things to Do in Philadelphia: Outdoor Adventures

Philly may be the fourth biggest city in the country but with close proximity to the Delaware River and Pennsylvania state parks—not to mention the many green spaces inside the city itself—it can sometimes feel more like an outdoor oasis.

Whether you are looking for some fresh air and a stroll through the city, want to get more active and hike a trail or ride bikes, or just want open space for a picnic, Philadelphia has areas and attractions that will keep you out of the hotels and enclosed museums and into the sunlight.
