Taking a trip to Philadelphia anytime soon? The city of brotherly love, as the locals call it, is home to countless things to do and amazing photo opps you won’t want to miss while you are there! Whether you are an avid traveler or first timer to the city, don’t miss these 5 Amazing Photo Opps in Philadelphia!
First up on the list is Independence Hall where in 1776 the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence in the building’s Assembly Room. Take a photo where it all started some 240 years ago but don’t forget to get your free, timed entry tickets from the Visitors Center to gain entry. Of course a photo outside in front of the hall will be just as awesome.
Stop by to photograph one of America’s most famous Quakers estate! William Penn’s recreated 17th century estate sits along the beautiful Delaware River. There are many things to do, especially for the family and some great photo opps throughout the 43 picturesque acres that the estate sits on. Give yourself plenty of time to tour and take some amazing pictures.
Near the University of Pennsylvania, the Morris Arboretum is full of thousands of rare and lovely wooded plants, 92- acres of structures and sculpture gardens, a formal rose garden and much more. You can get some stunning shots here and even listen to some live jazz music on the lawn in the summer time. Great spot for anyone needing senior pics, wedding pics or even family pictures done. If you don’t want to mess with taking the shots yourself for such an important occasion check out Adrian Rubin, a local photographer, and let him do it for you!
With over 25,000 posts on Instagram, #lovesculpture is one of the city’s best-known and loved landmarks. Robert Indiana’s aluminum LOVE sculpture is located in John F. Kennedy Plaza (or LOVE Park.) You can take some great selfies in front of the sculpture with the folks you love or just share the love and capture the beauty of the piece. Of course Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Plaza is iconic, as well, with pretty fountains and cityscapes to photograph.
The Betsy Ross House
Take a self-guided tour and see where our country’s flag was first made by Betsy Ross! If you love colonial style houses then you will love this little brick house that sits on Arch street only blocks from the Liberty Bell! You can photograph the little brick house, the upholstery shop, the bedroom and even the parlor. Giant elm, magnolia and sycamore trees can be found outside for your viewing pleasure or sit atop the nearly 300-year-old narrow, winding stairs to capture an amazing photo opp. Betsy is also buried here out in the courtyard!
