Best Free Dates in Philly
Looking to something original and fun with your date this weekend, but don’t want to break the bank? Well we’ve got you covered! Here is a list of the Best Free Dates you can go on in and around Philly!
- Walk down the Ben Franklin Parkway to The Art Museum and run up the stairs like a slightly less enthusiastic Rocky, then walk around Fairmount Water Works behind the museum and continue to walk along the Schuylkill River Trail
- Actually go inside The Art Museum on the first Sunday of each Monday or Wednesday nights for “Pay What You Wish” Admission (which is as good as free!)
- The Rodin Museum is always “Pay What You Wish” Admission (Please note that the museum is closed until February 1st for the installation of an exciting new exhibit!)
- Walk around Rittenhouse Square then sit down and people watch or, even better, dog watch (Bonus: If you’re around 10AM-2PM on Saturdays, Rittenhouse has an awesome year round Farmer’s Market with tons of vendors!)
- Walk around Elfreth’s Alley to admire the historic architecture and American history.
- Attend a student recital at The Curtis Institute — Recitals take place most Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.and most Fridays at 8 p.m.
- Rowboat or kayak for free at Bartram’s Garden on Saturdays from April to October.
- Visit The Liberty Bell at Independence National Historical Park (when the government is up and running!)
- Venture to Edgar Allan Poe’s House and see where he gathered inspiration for his writing during his time in Philadelphia (also when the government is up and running!)
