Philadelphia is a city bursting with art, food and color. The second largest city on the East Coast and the fifth most populous city in the country, the birthplace of America is also one of the most walkable cities in the United States. Between the Old City to Center City, there are tons of art galleries and museums to check out, plenty of shopping, and gorgeous buildings best viewed out in the clear. What that means, however, is that visitors might feel a little sore after a day of pounding the pavement. Which is a perfect excuse to check out one of Philly’s many raved about day spas! From simple pedis to Swedish massages, facials to make-overs for a special date night, or just a detoxifying and thoroughly relaxing massage for travel-worn and airplane-cramped traveler, there are tons of spas to choose from, particularly in Center City and the Old City.
