Out­door En­thu­si­ast

Where Philadelphia - - Where Inside -

Rit­ten­house Row is home to some of Philly’s most lux­u­ri­ous shop­ping des­ti­na­tions, but right in the cen­ter is a green refuge known as

(1) Rit­ten­house Square Park. Take a break from shop­ping and en­joy a tran­quil pic­nic on the well-man­i­cured grass af­ter pick­ing up lunch from nearby Di Bruno Broth­ers. Sit­ting pretty in the Chest­nut Hill neigh­bor­hood of Philadel­phia, (2) Mor­ris Ar­bore­tum is a pub­lic gar­den and his­toric site wrapped into one. In ad­di­tion to the 92-acres of flow­ers, trees and plants, the Ar­bore­tum also of­fers classes, tours and lec­tures for plant-lovers. Snap the per­fect pic­ture of the Ben Franklin Bridge from (3) Race Street Pier, a wa­ter­front spot at the banks of the city. On any given day, you’ll find run­ners, sun­bathers, pass­ing duck boats and an over­all feel­ing of calm­ness.
