Philadelphia Area
On Rocky’s Trail
The Philly experience will knock you out
market, sample some Italian cannolies— and pick up a dozen eggs for Rocky. Next stop on the Rocky trail should be Victor Café, also known as Adrian’s in the Rocky Balboa movie. Located in the south-central part of the city, the 135-seat, family-owned restaurant offers traditional Italian. Every evening, the wait staff serenades diners. For your Rocky trail finale, head to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Say hello, and get your photo snapped next to the Rocky statue at the bottom right side of the steps, which made appearances in five Rocky films. In addition to doing a victory dance at the top of those 72 stone stairs, visit the inside of the museum for some inspiring exhibits. Open through January 16, Michelangelo Pistoletto: Cittadellarte celebrates the work of this contemporary artist. An exhibit open through January that touches on the city’s heritage is Art in Revolutionary Philadelphia.
