It feels like we flew through May!  I for one am looking forward to a long weekend and the start of summer fun.  I've had such a busy month attending events and finding things to do around Philly which would be perfect for this weekend, some of which I'm sharing below!  But first, how cute is this tote, which I got from The Little Apple in Manayunk!  It's super high quality, durable and just plain cute.  The tote also comes in olive or black.

3 Things To Do In Philly For Memorial Day (or all summer!)

I always feel that Philly comes alive in summer.  Today I'm sharing just 3 things to do for Memorial Day, and beyond, for anyone who is visiting or lives in Philly!

  • Photo Pop Philly - Guys, I'm obsessed with Photo Pop, the first interactive exhibit in Philly (think along the lines of Museum of Ice Cream but featuring local Philly artists!)  I had the chance to preview it earlier this week and the photo opps are just never-ending.  Each exhibit was carefully designed to fit into the red, white and blue theme, perfect for Memorial Day.  Entry is $25 and you can purchase tickets here.  
         Tip:  End your visit with a trip to Scoop De Ville, which is right next door.  The ice cream is   
         amazing the shop is super cute.

  • Morgan's Pier - I attended MANNA's Guac Off at Morgan's Pier last night and it reminded me of how much fun this venue is.  The restaurant/bar is situated next to the river and you can't beat the view.  I've only been for happy hour, but the pretzel and the french fries are yummy but I can't wait to go back for brunch and/or dinner.  
         Tip: Dine on the upper deck if you can.  The views are amazing - see above!

  • Penn's Landing Summerfest & Spruce Street Harbor Park - Just down the road from Morgan's Pier you can find two of my favorite spots in Philly!  Spruce Street has become a Philly favorite since it opened a few years ago, and features restaurants and entertainment in a boardwalk-like setting (it's the closest you're getting to the beach in Philly!)  If you're in the mood for ice cream (yes, again with the ice cream but it's summer, right?!), stop by Franklin Fountain and get the peanut butter ice cream!  I also checked out Summerfest this month and it's just as great as I remember.  Lots of rides, amusement park entertainment, a roller skating rink and food (get the funnel cake and the crab fries - you'll thank me later!) Both of these venues are kid friendly!
         Tip: Stop by for a bite at the Moshulu - a restored ship with a cool outdoor bar that serves  
         delicious food/drinks!

I'll be sharing more fun stuff to do in Philly, so stay tuned.  I'm also going to get on a more consistent blogging schedule in June (fingers crossed) but make sure you're following me on Insta as I've been more active posting there!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend loves!
