    Must See for any visit to the Philly area. Bring walking/jogging shoes or a bike (or rent one) and cruise around the entire Fairmont Park area to the art museum. Fun views of the river and city.

    Rowing teams here are members of the Schuylkill Navy—the oldest amateur athletic governing body in the U.S. At night, the lights along this section of the Schuylkill River create a memorable view.
