PC01-Eat Like a Local

Mpact Transit + Community 2024

$70

Walking

If you’re curious about the iconic Philly foodways – yep, including cheesesteaks – this tour in the heart of the city offers the opportunity to taste and find out how some of these iconic foods came to be. Visit independently owned gems and the historic Reading Terminal Market. Experience where locals really eat and Philly’s low-key, unpretentious vibe. You won’t be transformed into a local but you will know first-hand the classic eats – from tomato pie to cheesesteak, fries “wit’ wiz” to pretzels – and sweet treats.

PC02-The Origins of Philadelphia Street Art

Mpact Transit + Community 2024

$25

Walking

Tour the origins of modern street art in Center City Philadelphia. Sites will include closed-to-the-public sections of the Broad Street Concourse and Spring Garden Station. See original tags by artists including Cornbread, Espo, Agua, and others. Each of these artists comes with a story. Together they provide a window into a street art scene that is distinct from the Philadelphia Mural Arts organization, which arose out of reactions to street art and in the "anti-graffiti" movement. Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get a little dirty. Photo credit: Ken Starr

PC03-Center City Mural Mile

Mpact Transit + Community 2024

$30

Walking

In 2023, USA Today voted Philadelphia the best city for street art in America. Mural Arts Philadelphia, the nation’s largest public art program, is a big reason. More than 4,000 murals created over 40 years make the city a giant outdoor art gallery. Tour Center City Philadelphia’s Mural Mile. Get to know a range of murals, contemporary and classic, and the stories they tell of the city, its leaders and citizens. Find out how public art ignites change as you discover pieces tucked in out-of-the-way places and encounter powerful additions to the cityscape, including Untitled by Amy Sherald and Water Gives Life by Philadelphia artists Euhri Jones and David McShane. Rain or shine - and no restroom stops, so please plan accordingly.
