If you can’t make it to the beach, be sure to stop by Spruce Street Harbor Park along the Delaware riverfront for Philly’s favorite pop-up beach.  With 50+ colorful hammocks, floating gardens and craft beer galore, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Spruce Street Harbor Park is considered one of the best places to visit in Philly.  The summertime hotspot is open 7 days per week, free, and dog-friendly (but don’t forget a leash!)
