Are there any outdoor activities I can do in Philadelphia?

If you are searching for rentals, Philadelphia has some great apartments. If you love the outdoors and are concerned you will need to scale back your active lifestyle if you move to this city—think again. Philadelphia has a large number of things that you can do if you are the kind of person that likes to get outside and go. Bicycling is just one example of an activity that you can enjoy anywhere from Eagleville to Horsham. This city actually has more bicycle lanes than any other in the United States.

If you love the water, the Delaware River provides ample opportunity for sailing or boating. There are other places to get out on the water as well, such as Lake Nockamixon and the Schuylkill River. The town squares and numerous gardens provide green space both in the city and beyond. The Japanese House and Garden in Fairmount Park is just one shining example. If you prefer to kick back and just be outside, there are also a number of festivals and events that take place outdoors each year, such as the Brandywine Harvest Festival and the Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia.
