In Loving Her Crazy, Iris and Nash get stuck in Chicago overnight and do a little site-seeing to pass the time. They hit some of the most popular highlights in Chicago, including Millennium Park, the Adler Planetarium, and the giant Ferris wheel at Navy Pier. I live in Pennsylvania and am a bit closer to Philadelphia than Chicago. And if you were ever going to get stuck site-seeing in an amazing city, Philadelphia should be at the top of your list.
There are so many things to see in Philly, especially if you are a history buff. There’s nothing like wandering around the sites where our country got its start! If you need to narrow down your list of attractions, here are my Top 5 Places to Visit in Philly.
- Philadelphia Museum of Art – not only does this museum house amazing works of art, it’s also home to the Rocky Steps and the Rocky statue (and yes, you can take pictures with it!) An added bonus is that on Wednesdays after 5 and on the first Sunday of the month, this museum is Pay What You Wish – so if you are on a tight budget, those would be great times to go.
- Please Touch Museum – this city is PACKED with incredible museums. But if you have kids, you really need to go to this one. They can touch and play with EVERYTHING. It’s a kid’s dream. Educational and entertaining. Can’t beat that!
- Reading Terminal Market – this is a food lover’s paradise. The oldest farmer’s market in the country, it has over 80 merchants. Definitely a place to take your time and enjoy the offerings!
- Independence National Historical Park – you can’t visit Philly without visiting some of our nation’s most famous landmarks. Including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
- Longwood Gardens – I chose this one for the spectacular scenery. If you want a gorgeous outdoor experience, this is the place to go. 1,077 acres and over 40 indoor and outdoor gardens full of breathtaking sites. In the summer, there are also fireworks and concerts.
Philly is home to MANY more museums, including Edgar Allen Poe’s house (free from Fri-Sun!), the Franklin Institute (a full city block of interactive and kid-friendly exhibits), the Rodin museum, the Barnes Foundation, the US Mint, the country’s first zoo, and so very many more amazing places to see.
About Loving Her Crazy:
It was just supposed to be one crazy night…
Iris Clayton is supposed to be on a tropical island, soaking up the sun and a few dozen mojitos. Instead, she’s snowbound in Chicago overnight, holding out hope the morning flight isn’t cancelled. Good thing there’s a hot cowboy to keep her company. And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Tall, Calm, and Sun-Streaked can make her tremble with one sultry look from under his well-worn hat.
Montana rancher Nash Wallace sucks at ice skating, has no clue what a selfie is, and may be a tad averse to breaking and entering, but being with Iris makes him want to bend a few rules. Or, hell, throw them out the window altogether. She’s fun, spontaneously crazy, and can rock a Muppet fur coat like no one’s business. He’s falling hard and fast, but wanting to spend his life with someone after one night is insane.
Except, nothing has ever felt so right, and neither of them wants the night to end…
