This summer in Philly has really been so exciting to me. I just spent my 4th of July weekend here, frolicking around the city with my sister, her puppy, and some friends and had the best time . . . dining outside, laying around in the park, enjoying our city’s walkability factor, shopping for fresh flowers, making the best froyo combination that hit the spot, and just taking in all Philly has to offer. Seeing all the events that were on was amazing, I wish we could have seen them all, even the local businesses were getting into the spirit by flying American flags as they are illuminated by solar powered flagpole lighting during the night time, it seemed like Philly was constantly lit up and sparkling with the festivities.
If you’ve been on the internet in the past, well, month or so, you’ve definitely heard of the city’s new Spruce Street Harbor Park (Columbus Boulevard & Spruce Street) over on the Delaware River Waterfront. It seems like everyone is talking about this place, so I couldn’t wait to check it out. As soon as I heard this year’s #WhyILovePhilly party was being held there (the night before it opened to the public!), I snatched up a ticket. And let me tell you, it is worth the hype.
