One of the first things you’ll see when you visit Philadelphia is the soaring, statue-topped clock tower of City Hall. Situated at the city’s crux, the building bisects Broad and Market streets—the two main arteries that radiate roughly north, south, east and west—creating a nightmare for commuters. Monday through Friday from 9:30AM to 4:15PM, visitors can travel 500 feet up to the observation deck for panoramic views, as seen from directly underneath the crowning likeness of Philadelphia founder William Penn (just be sure to get there early to get tickets). Once you’re back on the ground, head across the street to snap a picture of Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE statue in the aptly-named LOVE Park.
