Run the steps just like Rocky (after getting a picture with his statue of course). Also just a great museum.

Ya gotta run the steps! Sit on top of the steps to watch the sunset or rise over the city! Probably my favorite thing to do!

Market
“A great place for locals and visitors, especially if the weather is bad out. An overwhelming selection of food stands and restaurants, mixed in with shops along with produce and butchers, fishmongers, and other sources for a great home cooked meal. On Saturdays the Amish bring their goods as well. Prepare to spend a few hours here, and come hungry! On top of that Chinatown is across the street, if you're in the mood for asian food. Not just Chinese, but Japanese, Korean, and Burmese as well.”

Plaza
“Largest of four city parks offering great shopping (off Walnut street) and dining options. Pop into Parc for a bite and a cocktail at Steven Starr's flagship Art deco-inspired French Eatery (18th/Locust). Or simply sit on a park bench and enjoy people-watching (and puppy-watching). Grab a book at Joseph Fox's Bookstore (Walnut/17th) and settle into La Colombe (Walnut/19th) for an unforgettable cup of coffee.”
