Philadelphia Mini-Itineraries

Self-Guided Walking Tours from the Convention Center

Have a few minutes before your next session or looking to explore after a packed day of activities? Try one of these mini-itineraries for a walk outside near the convention center.


Paint Torch, 1-minute walk

Across the street from the Broad Street entrance of the Convention Center is Lenfest Plaza, part of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) and home to Claes Oldenburg’s 51-feet tall “Paint Torch” sculpture.


Crown mural, 1-minute walk

From the Paint Torch, walk south on Broad Street to check out the Philadelphia Municipal Services Building to find the Crown mural, which wraps around the building. 


Reading Terminal Market, 1-minute walk

Exit the Convention Center on Arch Street and walk across the street to Reading Terminal Market, one of the largest and oldest public markets in the US. You’ll find more than 80 merchants selling fresh meats, cheeses, and baked goods, plus the widest variety of restaurants under one roof.


LOVE Park, 4-minute walk

Make your way east of City Hall to Love Park, on the corner of 15th and Arch Streets to see Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE statue in LOVE Park. While there, be sure to snap a selfie at one of Philadelphia’s most Instagram-worthy locales.


Dilworth Park, 4-minute walk

If you have a break in between sessions or are looking for a good place to eat lunch outside, find a seat in Dilworth Park adjacent to Philadelphia’s City Hall. This is the perfect location for people-watching, entertainment, and iconic architecture.
