I oftentimes find myself out and about in Philly when I exhale and exclaim to myself, Now this is what I call city living. Coming from a small town in East Texas, this happens often!
It happened to me yesterday when I happily found myself at Rittenhouse Park. If you want to get a true glimpse into Philadelphia, you can check out the Liberty Bell, the Rocky statue or some of the amazing art at any of the wonderful museums. Or, just venture over to Rittenhouse Park, grab a bench and take in the sights! Philly has several wonderful parks with Franklin, Logan and Washington being my favorites. However, I feel that Rittenhouse is the most reflective of our great city. Where else can you share such close proximity to a stranger (I always seem to bench it with the older person feeding the birds), eat an amazing sandwich from a nearby deli (Colney Delicatessen is the best!) and listen to a string quartet while observing fascinating characters go to and fro. I find that I can do this for hours upon hours, working up a thirst. I then proceed to walk straight over to my other favorite spot, Rouge, for a tasty cocktail at an outside table where i continue my quest to enjoy the characters and my city.
Next time you're out and about in Philly and want to exhale and exclaim to yourself, Now this is what I call city living, head straight to Rittenhouse Park. It's always an adventure!
