Winter Philly Fun!

Winter is an exciting time here in Philly. Whether you’re looking for a unique date idea, a one-of-a-kind holiday gift, or some family fun; this top ten list of winter activities has you covered.

Fireside Sessions at the RiverRink Winterfest

The RiverRink Winterfest is home to Philadelphia’s largest outdoor ice skating rink and Winter Wonderland. Here visitors can skate right along the Delaware River, giving them a different vantage point of the Ben Franklin Bridge. When it’s time to warm up, head over to the fire pits or stop inside cozy warming cabins for a drink. While there are a variety of exciting events and activities happening here all winter long, we recommend checking out the free Fireside Sessions taking place every other Thursday in January and February. These concerts feature live acoustic music by some of Philly’s most popular local bands and take place by the cozy fire pits.

The Christmas Village at LOVE Park

Philly’s Authentic German Christmas Village is back at the recently renovated and reopened LOVE Park until December 24th. Here visitors will find a holiday market, in its 10th year, bustling with over 80 vendors offering unique food and drink. Insider tip: the mulled wine comes with a souvenir mug! Before visiting, check out the event calendar for more specific details on concerts, competitions, wine tastings, and pictures with Santa.
