Things To Do on Valentine’s Day in Philadelphia

Philadelphia offers several exciting Valentine’s Day events and activities. It is, after all, The City of Brotherly Love and known to celebrate love of all kinds. From touring Philadelphia’s historic landmarks to attending an intimate jazz dinner at a local restaurant, you’ll find plenty of fun things to do on Valentine’s Day. Music is a huge part of Philly’s culture, and the city’s February calendar is packed with great bands and artists to see and hear throughout the month. Here are a few other things to do on Valentine’s Day in Philadelphia:

Visit LOVE Park 

Philadelphia’s iconic attraction, the LOVE sculpture resides in John F. Kennedy Plaza, also known as LOVE Park. Created by famous artist Robert Indiana, the LOVE sculpture honors the pure nature of love, and makes for an envy-worthy Instagram backdrop for Valentine’s Day. 

Cruise the Delaware River on The Spirit of Philadelphia

Enjoy the sights of the city as you cruise down the historic Delaware River on The Spirit of Philadelphia, one of Philadelphia’s most popular attractions. The annual Valentine’s Day Cruise is Feb. 11, 2023, and tickets are on sale now. 

Buy Chocolate at America’s Oldest Candy Store

Established during the American Civil War, Shane’s Confectionery has purveyed to-die-for candies and chocolates since 1863. Shane’s also has a Chocolate Works & Cafe, where they serve up mugs of steaming-hot traditional drinking chocolate. 

Take a Ghost Tour of Haunted Philadelphia

Gal-entines and Pal-entines looking to stay away from romance may enjoy a spine-tingling tour of a haunted historic mansion or cursed ship. Taking a ghost tour in Philadelphia remains one of the city’s most alluring attractions, and a haunted Valentine’s Day is a perfect choice for those wanting to buck the traditional dinner and flowers.

Attend the Tiny Dynamite Valentine’s Day Show

Tiny Dynamite is a local performance troupe that hosts an annual Valentine’s show at the historic Powel House in downtown Philadelphia. A funny look at modern love that anyone will appreciate, this show delivers good times and big laughs. Tickets include the show, a drink, and a snack.

Race up the “Rocky Stairs”

What could get your heart pumping faster than a sprint up the 72 steps of the “Rocky Stairs” at The Philadelphia Museum of Art? Whether you’re a competitive couple, friends, or just fans of the film, there’s no better way to celebrate heart than by paying tribute to Rocky Balboa.
