Places You Must Visit in the City
I’m almost ashamed to say this seeing as though I’ve lived in Philadelphia my entire life, but Friday was my first time visiting the Fairmount Water Works. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a great place to go to eat, site see, bike, run, skate, and even fish. It’s right off Kelly Drive and located by the Art Museum, which means that it is a great place to spend an entire day. If you do decide to go to the Art Museum when visiting the Fairmount Water Works, I suggest Sundays because admission to the Museum is by donation, so you pay whatever you can afford.
One of the reasons why I think most summer associates don’t stay in the area after graduation is because they don’t know about all of the little hidden treasures that this city has to offer. To a certain extent I would even put myself in that group. For example, the city offers many activities for young and old to enjoy such as the Franklin Institute, Please Touch Museum, the National Convention Center, Kimmel Center, Merriam Theater, and the African-American Museum. Not to mention the fact that the Barnes Foundation, which is currently located in Lower Merion will be moving to the Parkway in the near future.
So, if you can think of some places that I haven’t named, which would interest a young law student with some time on their hands, feel free to drop a plug.
