Spring Arts

Rob Focht, Saint Joseph’s University ’19 | @rob.focht

Spring Arts is my favorite place to explore. You can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants, like Pho 20 and Vivi Bubble Tea (a great spot for dessert!).

The new Rail Park is a great place to relax with friends on a warm day. It’s unlike anything else in Philadelphia! Both Union Transfer and Underground Arts are smaller concert venues but hold fantastic shows featuring great artists, too.

Franklin Square has something for everyone, from a carousel and mini golf to fantastic food at Square Burger. The Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square is the annual light show experience that is sure to take your breath away!

Reading Terminal Market is a Philly staple, and your best bet if you’re with a large group. You have to try DiNic’s Roast Pork, a legendary Italian-style pulled pork sandwich, and end your meal with ice cream from Bassett’s Ice Cream—it’s worth the line, I promise.
