South Philly Barbacoa
Mexican restaurant1140 S 9th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States
"I have several favorite eateries — one is South Philly Barbacoa, near the Italian market. The head chef is Christina Martinez, and she has a wonderful story of coming to the US from Mexico and bringing her style of cooking barbacoa to Philadelphia. They also make the best tacos I've ever eaten."

Skateboard parkBroad Street &, Pattison Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148, United States
"FDR Skatepark is the largest DIY skate park in the world. It was created by a skater, and it's such a visual experience going to the park. It's a concrete paradise, very colorful, and there are tags and art on the concrete. It's always changing because the skaters there are working on it all year round."
Wissahickon Valley Park
ParkValley Green Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19128, United States
"Philadelphia has a great urban park called Wissahickon Valley Park: it's this 1800-acre gorge across forests and meadows, and it drops 100 feet in altitude before it goes into the river. So it's pretty steep, and there's a whole mountain biking community around it, because you can access this park from Center City Philadelphia."
Market919 S 9th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States
"South Philadelphia is the most diverse part of our city, and one of my favorite parts is the Italian Market. It's one of the oldest and largest open–air markets in the country — there are cheese shops, butcher shops, and Mexican taquerias. It's just a wonderful feast for all the senses.I love going there."
