    I love Rocky movies i just couldn't leave Philadelphia without taking a pic of his statue. It's a fun thing to see. If you're looking at the stairs, the statue is to the right.

    The Rocky statue was first unveiled in RockyIII and was placed at the top of the Art Museum steps. It has since been moved to its current location at the foot and to the right of the Museum steps.

    Though we personally don't care for a fictional athlete from 40 years ago, thousands still pose for photos here. Fun fact: though it looks good, Rocky's running route as pictured doesn't make sense.
