Try every food truck at a pop-up Night Market
We love our food trucks in Philly, and with warmer weather comes the return of Night Market. Popping up every few weeks at pre-selected neighborhoods throughout the city, take your guest to stroll, nibble, and imbibe. Are the Night Markets too few and far between for your liking? Spring and summer mean a new street festival nearly every weekend in Philly, so keep your eyes peeled for other special food truck events throughout Philly’s neighborhoods.
Bring a blanket and see a show at the Mann Center
Head to the Mann Center to see some top performing acts, or even better, the Philadelphia Orchestra’s summer movie series -- wherein the musicians boost your favorite movies with their own live, orchestral soundtrack. Food trucks, bars, and vendors abound at the sprawling half-covered venue, so bring a blanket if the weather's good and lay out on the lawn all evening long.
Order poolside bottle service at Vesper Dayclub
The 21+ outdoor pool across from the Piazza has had its ups and downs over the last few years, taking on new ownership and being remarketed from North Shore Pool Club to Monarch Pool Club to its newest iteration, Vesper Dayclub. Yes, the crowd can be hit or miss, but it’s a unique experience to urban Philly and worth at least one or two visits this summer, so make a reservation while you still can.
The spring and summer pop-up on the Delaware River is back for a new season this spring, preparing with hammocks, twinkly lights, and dozens of food and drink vendors to make the park a must for all the senses.
