  1. Victoria- thank you. This is exactly what I need. I had no idea what I was going to do, or what there is new to do in the summer in Philadelphia- I did not really think about it much last year since I was going back home for the summer. Now being in Philadelphia all summer, I am definitely going to want to find new “summer” things to do, and this list is definitely the perfect start.
