5 Ways to Treat Yourself for the Holidays!

Treat Yourself for the Holidays!

Ice Skating
From the Rothman Rink at Dilworth Park to Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, you have plenty of places to lace up and get some laps in. P.S. Stay tuned for January 31 when we are hosting an Open Arts College Night: Skate Night at the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest.

Miracle on South 13th Street
Reaching across South 13th Street from one rowhome to the next, strings of colorful twinkling lights create a canopy of holiday cheer for sightseers to stroll through. After you’ve been dazzled, treat yourself to Varallo Brothers cannoli or Marra’s pizza pie.

Reading Terminal
Don’t know what kind of mood you’re in but know you want to eat something delicious? Reading Terminal Market, 51 N 12th St, is the spot for you. Some of our favorites:  Beiler’s Donuts, DiNic’s Roast Pork, Beck’s Cajun Cafe, Tootsie’s, and Famous 4th Street Cookie Company.

Philadelphia Museum of Art
We think this is the most festive Philadelphia activity you can do. Run up the Art Museum steps, a.k.a “the Rocky steps,” and you’ll be greeted by the beautiful Christmas tree that’s right in front of the museum. 

High Tea at The Dandelion 
Offered year long at The Dandelion, High Tea is especially cozy during the holiday season. The food and atmosphere – mini cakes, finger sandwiches, working fireplace and big cozy chairs – will have you feeling like you’re in London without taking that seven-hour flight.
