If con­tem­po­rary is your art from of choice, be sure to pay the (1) Penn­syl­va­nia Academy

of Fine Arts a visit. Both a school and a mu­seum, you’ll find in­spi­ra­tion from in­fa­mous names as well as stu­dents. Lo­cated in Doylestown, Penn­syl­va­nia, (2) James A. Mi

ch­ener Art Mu­seum is a bit of a trip out­side the city, but it’s well worth it. The out­door sculp­ture gallery should be your first stop be­fore ven­tur­ing in­side to see art­work in­spired by the area and a tribute to the ca­reer of James A. Mich­ener him­self.

For the Girls

The adorable out­door gar­den pa­tio at (1)

Talula’s Gar­den is enough to pull you in­side, but it gets bet­ter once you get your hands on a brunch menu. A taste of the sweet potato pan­cakes with can­died pecans and whipped honey but­ter is a great way to start the ul­ti­mate girls day. Lo­cated along the Schuylkill River, (2) Boat House Row is com­prised of Vic­to­rian-style boathouses all built a cen­tury ago. Go at night and take a stroll along the houses when ev­ery house is lit up for a picturesque sight. Or go dur­ing the day for a great place to get some ex­er­cise. Com­plete your week­end with a taste of Philly’s sweet­est treat at (3) Ca­pogiro Gelato Café. Their gelato is made with fresh, lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and they fea­ture fla­vors like pis­ta­chio, mas­car­pone and fig and the classic Strac­ciatella.

Luxury Trav­el­ers

Noth­ing says luxury like an evening at the bal­let. Spend an evening trans­fixed by our lo­cal and leg­endary bal­let com­pany, (1) the

Penn­syl­va­nia Bal­let as they per­form a grand show di­rected by An­gel Corella. (2) Sophy

Curson has been around since 1929 and they have been lo­cal ex­perts on high- end fash­ions ever since. Car­ry­ing European and Amer­i­can de­sign­ers and jewel­ers, this place is per­fect for find­ing that some­thing spe­cial. Plus, the staff will help you cre­ate the ul­ti­mate date night look or pick out sta­ple pieces to com­plete your wardrobe. A meal at (3) Lacroix is an ex­pe­ri­ence in it­self. With a stunning wine list, up­scale menu items like Alaskan King crab and dry aged duck and af­ter­noon tea ser­vice, Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Jon Ci­chon will make sure you are taken care of day or night.
