The past several months have been challenging for all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown much of everyday life in disarray. As Philadelphia slowly begins to roll into the green phase, some of the best sights, sounds, and destinations you need to visit have started to reopen with proper safety precautions in place for visitors. Here are some of my, Harry Hayman’s, favorite Philadelphia attractions.
The Independence Seaport Museum has reopened with Philadelphia entering the Green Phase; however, it is currently running on a weekend-only schedule. The Independence Seaport Museum aims to provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the waterways found in and around the city of Philadelphia. It is an experience that is fun for the entire family.
Spruce Street at Harbor Park gives its visitors a memorable experience every time out. With light installations that give the park a unique look as you take in the sights and sounds down on the Delaware River Waterfront, Spruce Street at Harbor Park has been a summer mainstay in Philadelphia. Pop-up restaurants, a beer garden, lawn games, and some well-positioned hammocks make Spruce Street at Harbor Park a key summer destination.
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Pop Up Garden has opened for the season, following proper safety procedures to keep staff and patrons safe. The Pop Up Garden at South Street gives visitors a vibrant hangout spot in the center of a pollinator garden. Guests can sample from a delicious seasonal food and drink menu. Some of the safety procedures that the PHS has taken include contactless ordering through a convenient mobile app and a 90-minute time limit for groups dining in the garden.
As we continue to navigate the current situation, finding unique ways to serve the public and give them the hospitality experience has been challenging. I, Harry Hayman, a hospitality management specialist, commend these businesses for their continued commitment to serve their guests and provide them with a safe and memorable experience as best they can under the circumstances.
