10 Things You'll Only Experience In Philadelphia

Because you can't get it anywhere else. Sure, every big metropolitan city has its quirks, but Uniqlo believes you have to be in Philly to experience any of these.

Posted on

1. Addison Street is one of the prettiest streets in the entire country.

Historic-looking brick townhouses in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, with trees lining the sides of the street. What's not to love?

2. You can relive the events of Bastille Day at the Eastern State Penitentiary.

Imagine the French Revolution, in all its historic grandeur, but replace that one part where Marie Antoinette yells "Let them eat cake!" with "Let them eat Tastykakes!" (which happen to be Philadelphia's quintessential sweet lunch treats for school lunch boxes).

3. Speaking of the Eastern State Penitentiary, you can see the cell that once held Al Capone.

Not bad for a prison, huh?

4. Boathouse Row is perhaps the best place for a sunset photo op in the Northeast.

The sun just hits the water at the perfect angle to light up everything in that beautiful golden glow.

5. If you're confident and proud of your body, the Naked Bike Ride might be right up your alley.

You're allowed to wear clothes, but it's not required...

6. Nowhere else in the world will you order food with the words "one, whiz, with."

Translation: really freakin' tasty cheesesteak. Just try it.

7. The quirkiest art museum ever happens to be the collection of a man who absolutely hated Philadelphia.

Despite his wishes, the collection now resides in Philadelphia.

8. Phillies Stadium is the #1 vegetarian ballpark.

Who says you can't be vegetarian and not enjoy junk food at the game?! They have vegetarian versions of all the typical game foods, in addition to a gluten-free hot dog. No joke.

9. The Mutter Museum is weird, a littly spooky, but extremely fascinating.

It's basically a building full of strange medical oddities and other preserved body parts. Still though, you gotta see it.

10. If you love fine dining, there's no better place than Philadelphia.

Stephen Starr has several incredible restaurants throughout the city that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning of taste buds.

And now you can experience Uniqlo.
