    This place is a hidden gem in Philadelphia. Entry is $8/$5. In spring and in fall it can be cool to go there, sit down in the garden and relax. In the summer it can be a bit too hot inside (No AC)

    For a great view of the garden and pond without having to enter the property, sit on the ledge along Belmont Drive. Also, visit on April 15th for Fairmount Park's annual Cherry Blossom Festival!

    Take a tour of the stunning gardens and historical Japanese House, built in 1953 in Japan and moved to Philadelphia in 1958 after a stint at MOMA in NYC.
