Philadelphia travel tips

1) Relax with the cucumber martini and admire the views of Philadelphia from high

Find the Comcast Technology Centre at 1 N 19th Street in Philadelphia and go up by glass elevator to the Jg skyhigh bar. All the drinks, including the tasty cucumber martini, cost around $15. But you pay for the atmosphere, not for drinks. 12-metres glass walls show a great view from the city's tallest building; waterfall walls and mirror-paneled ceilings that reflect the sidewalks some 60 stories below are incredible. It is totally worthwhile!

2) Are there any free cultural events in Philadelphia?

Visit free cultural events at the Kimmel Centre at 300 S Broad Street in Philadelphia. They have weekly indoor and outdoor concerts and workshops. In addition, the glass domed rooftop is a great place to visit.

3) Buy some goods at Art in the Age in Philadelphia and cook great cocktails at home

Located at 116 N 3rd Street in Philadelphia, the Art in the Age store will provide you with great souvenirs. Settle down at the bar for a tasting ($7 or $10 depending on drinks); then, buy hand-crafted spirits, artisanal bitters and cordials, pickles, long-handled stir spoons, strainers, shakers, recipe books and other cocktail necessities.
