A Weekend in Philly

Earlier this year, we took a road trip to Philly with Madewell as an ode to the art of the weekend road trip. Philly is just a couple of hours from DC, and though I'd been there in the past, it had only been for short stints. I've never really gotten to know the city until now but let me tell you; I'm in love. The food, the architecture, everything - it's one of those great cities that I loved right away. The entire city is actually a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it's easy to see why. I did a longer recap on the Madewell and Artifact Uprising blogs, but thought I'd share a few outtakes here. Until next time! madewellblog2 madewellblog1










Where we stayed: 

Loews Philadelphia - This hotel was stunning with incredible views, and cloud-like beds, a must after a long day walking around the city.

Where we ate: 

Little Fish - Absolutely amazing seafood in a cozy, intimate BYOB spot

Hungry Pigeon - A great spot for some good coffee and a pastry before starting your day

Root Restaurant - A newer spot with a beautiful interior and a great menu

Tredici Enoteca- This wine bar and restaurant is amazing! You’ll come for just a glass and want to stay the rest of the evening!

What we saw: 

Race Street Pier - Beautiful bridge views right on the waterfront

Philadelphia City Hall - A historic building that is such an icon in the city

Longwood Garden - This is outside the city, but a must-visit! I could have spent an entire day here exploring the gardens. It’s such a unique and inspiring place.
