Having grown up outside of Philadelphia, I sometimes feel as though I have exhausted all the things to do in the area. Of course there are always new restaurants to try, but activities can be hard to come by when you are trying to plan a fun weekend with your favorite person, or your girlfriends. For Philadelphia festivals, pop-ups, and events you can always check out www.uwishunu.com. If you’re looking for an easy date night/day idea, here are some of my favorite date combos from around the city.

For the Sunday-Kinda-Love Couple

Sunday Brunch at The Bishops Collar + The Philadelphia Museum of Art or Barnes Museum

A Spot of Tea at the Random Tea Room + Flowers from Petit Jardin en Ville

Get Spooked at The Mütter Museum + $1 Tacos and $4 Margaritas at El Rey Happy Hour…then ask your waiter to be brought to the Ranstead Room 😉

Tapas in the Garden Room at Harp & Crown + A Walk down Addison Street at 17th to see the Lights at Night


For the Wannabe-Hipster Couple

Go for a Hunt at the Bulk Vintage Warehouse + Split Cheesesteaks from Pat’s and Geno’s to Compare (Classic Philly)

Free Yoga on Race Street Pier + Acai Bowls at Stripp’d Juice

Sandwiches and Cookies at 4th Street Deli + Some Vintage Shopping at Retrospect on South Street


For the Nightlife-Loving-Foodie Couple

A Movie at the Ritz Theatre + Dinner at Parc on Rittenhouse Square

Mac ‘n’ Cheese at Llama Tooth + Concert at Union Transfer

Cocktails at Grafitti Bar + Dinner at Double Knot


Cam and I just went to Harp & Crown for our anniversary and I was blown away. I’m totally a sucker for plants, gallery walls, and speakeasies and they’ve got all three.


Have a fun date night and let me know what your favorite activity was!
