Where: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
What to do: History buffs already know Philly is the place to nerd out over early American artifacts, but there's also the top-notch boutiques of Rittenhouse Square, under-the-radar music venues like The Barbary, and incredible artsy destinations like the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where you can catch special exhibitions on architect Zaha Hadid, photographer Zoe Strauss, and Van Gogh. Our picks? Shop for colorful housewares, bedding, and gifts at Open House near City Hall, then break for a cheesesteak.
What to wear: A comfy sweater and cropped trousers are ideal for a day of boutique browsing and museum-hopping, and flat oxfords will prep you for a day on your feet. A colorful crossbody bag and chic sunnies are the perfect casual-cool finishing touches.
