Philadelphia’s Five Best Spots to Enjoy Scenic Views

One of the best ways to appreciate the beauty of a city is through its scenic overlooks. Enjoy Philadelphia’s spectacular views at five of the best view spots from the top.

Go for the top at Philadelphia Museum of Art

The old world architecture and a straight shot of City Hall awaits viewers from the top of Philadelphia Museum of Art. Aside from the artworks, revisit Rocky’s famous climb on the 72 stone steps before the museum’s entrance in the award-wining 1976 film Rocky.

Check out the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Check out Philly at One Liberty Observation Deck

Get a sweeping 360-degree view of Philadelphia cityscape at the 57th floor of One Liberty Observatory Deck. Other features include art installations like Benjamin Franklin’s sculpture, listening stations and multi-lingual touch-screens that capture Philly’s history.

Get mesmerized by the sunset at City Hall Tower Observation Deck

Catch the breathtaking sunset over the city when you visit the City Hall Tower Observation Deck. Along with the observation deck located underneath William Penn’s statue, the City Hall offers two-hour public tours that highlight the history and architecture of the building.

Check out the City Hall Tower Observation Deck.

Dine with a view at R2L

Philly’s third tallest building, the Two Liberty Place, houses R2L that matches a creative American cuisine with a bird’s eye view of the city located on the 37th floor. Visit R2L’s happy hours and enjoy good snack and drink deals. Order a Sunset Punch to go along with your dishes (and the view of the sun setting) if you like your cocktails strong.
