Thanksgiving weekend is always a favorite time of year for me. The weather is at its autumn peak, the city quiets down a bit, and yet there is always so much to do. Philadelphia has really taken it up a notch with its warmer weather spectacles, like its numerous beer gardens in hip neighborhoods, the increase in public space on our waterfront including Spruce Street Harbor Park and all the new Piers, there are running paths, hiking paths, Mural Arts tours, and, of course, the tours I give of the proposed Rail Park. Now that the weather is beginning to chill, Philly isn’t letting us down. Dilworth Park at City Hall opened its annual Rothman Skating Rink already, as of this weekend the holiday lights will be set up around the city that illuminate the skies after the early sunsets. Something else fantastic that’s opening to the public this weekend is the Observation Deck at Liberty One. Joining other Center City favorite views like the City Hall Observation Tower, XIX at the Bellview, Top of the Tower at Three logan Square, and the Pyramid Club, November 28th holds a new experience. At 57 floors up and 360 degree views, if you’re a local, the ever present “I can see my house from here” phrase will most likely hold true.
