Philly!!! Nice small place to visit if you live in a radius of 90 mins driving. We missed to have a philly cheese steak can you believe it?! It is a very clean city about trash but not about odors specially from the homeless people. That seems to be a very common social problem everywhere that keeps growing and growing!!! Anyways.Public buildings are beautiful, well maintained and garbage free. Parking is expensive on weekdays and even onncertain places you have to pay on Sundays even.Regardless of that is a nice place to have a good time with the family or friends.Highly recommended!!!!
Really neat place to go and see all the people and the statue of the rocky. It is in the middle of several huge pieces of art in the square so so much to see even before you in the art museum. Recommend going with the family and kids so many works of art to see and enjoy with everyone there.
Loved the energy at these steps! The music, the scene, everything. Definitely a place to visit while in Philly and take in the sights!
On our way up north we had to stop by and see the best heavyweight champion of the world, Rocky. Took pictures and and ran up the stairs at the art museum. Awesome experience if you like the movies.
Great attraction! I've been coming here since I was a kid. Run up and down the steps like Rocky. Afterwards swoop on down to the bottom and snag a photo with him. Oh yeah, and don't forget that there is a museum directly in front of you. If they just had better/closer parking to the front-main entrance it'll be a 5 star.
The steps offer a great view of the city of Philadelphia. There is a rocky statue at street level for photo shots.If you go to the steps, you should go inside the Art Museum too - it's a great museum. After the museum, you can go on a nice walk along Kelly Drive. Kelly Drive is next to the Schuylkill River, which has a lot of nice views and some historical markers and statues. There is also Boathouse Row; these are historic houses on the river that different college rowing teams as there bases. It is a really nice area, especially in nice weather. I don't know if it is safe at night though
It's an amazing place to visit in the fall with the wind blowing and everything. You can take really nice pictures too.
I am a fan of the Rocky films so I definitely wanted to check out the statue and go up the steps. I didn't run since it was way to hot and humid. It is worth checking out especially if you are a fan of the films. But be warned. There will be lines.
Common now who doesn't want to run up the Rocky stairs especially if you grew up in the 70s! The parking across the Art museum was free (we went on a Saturday) and it's easy to get to. The Rocky statue had quite a line (for pics). The fountain at the top of the stairs is beautiful and refreshing and the views of the city from the top are picture perfect.
The Iconic Rocky Steps! If You Are Like Me That Grew Up Watching Sylvester Stallone Movies Like Rambo And Rocky, Running Up The Rocky Steps And Taking Pictures With The Rocky Footprints And Rocky Statue Is A Definite Must Do! It Is Amazing How Many People Visit This Location Daily To Perform These Activities. I Love It!!
Its art museum, lots of paintings u can see outside of the museum . I like that place , nice view there
I actually thought these steps were harder to take. But it is very easy to go up there, the steps are not really steep so everyone can do it! 💪 And should definitely do it because up there you get an unique view on the city center of Philly!
We had a blast. Stinks that they moved the statue though. The surrounding architecture and statues are amazing!
To anyone who has ever seen Rocky movies, it's just a must see, and also a must do regarding the famous 'run it and lift your arms like a champion on top', and maybe even say a couple of 'Adriaaaan' . It kinda has a sentimental value, 'cause it makes you relive our favorite boxing movie scenes. But to move away from the movie, it is truly a beautiful building, with a view on the city that just takes the breath away.
Pretty awesome. My wife visited awhile back and actually saw Sylvester Stallone here. I unfortunately did not get to meet him.
Challenging on a hot summer day, but something you gotta do! The statue is tucked below the steps in a little alcove so go there first, then hit the stairs! Great view from the top of the stairs!
Be it during day time to visit the Art museum which is majestic and is a must view or night time when you can sit on the steps to look and wonder at the sky along with the city lights, this place amazes me everytime I visit it! The back view leads into a small trail which talks about the history of the place and its development over years!!!
If you’re planning to go to Philadelphia, add the rocky steps to your list! Its so cook to see where the movie was filmed! You can run up the steps, see the statue, the arts museum at the top and the water fountains! Loved being here
The steps are full of people that are exercising and taking some kind of fitness class there. It was cool to see the steps and see the view from the top but there are people at the top who offer to take your photo for money. It kind of made my experience there less surreal.
It was awesome!! If you are a Rocky fan you got to go there. The energy is amazing, people climbing the stars, jumping, playing "Gonna fly now," and just having fun. It was really great. Love you Rocky!! ^_^
I was named after the film so couldn't be more happy visiting the place where the first bit of me was ever designed. Then I was assembled in china like everything else. Be aware of people asking you money for a picture. Enjoy
If you watched the Rocky movie, you definitely know what this place is and you automatically run up the steps and try to recreate the iconic training scene. When you finally reach the top of the steps, you turn around and face the city with both your hands up in victory. Look down on the ground and you a see shoe prints on the spot where Rocky stood. Its a great marketing ploy to get tourist to visit this spot. Great attraction also for the museum to get people to hang around the area. After the steps you can either check out the museum, sit around the fountain and real for a while or you down and take a pic with the Rocky Balboa Statue.
I would recommend it to anyone who think they need to be in better shape man or woman 😊😊
Beautiful view and super iconic spot. If in town make your way over especially I've you've ever seen Rocky. They have a statue of Rocky at the lower end of the steps and the art gallery is worth checking out as well.
It was great. The statue is off to the side. It is a must to visit when you swing down to Philly besides the cheese steaks. You will see various people out working out and yes everyone sings the Rocky theme song when going up the stairs. I suggest walking from love park to the stairs dont suggest doing it in 28 degree weather in the night but its worth it
Great place to visit near down town Philadelphia. Great place for photos. We'r walked from down town, at night. It's a comfortable walk and it's well lit the whole way. Safe and clean.
Beautiful evening out and about on the Art Museum steps and walking along Eakins Oval. The weather was great on a breezy and comfortable summer evening. Fun things to do and view along the way. You just can't beat the impressive view looking down the Parkway, day or night from the top of the museum's steps. Love it!❤
This was a special moment for me. I actually walked the steps to memorialize my mom. She passed away the day after mothers day, this year. She had a rare blood cancer. My mom thought she would get better. Her plan was to walk the Rocky steps. It was a Bucket List. Well...my Boyfriend and I half jogged and half walked for my mom!! The crowd was great. We also took a picture. It was a great day and the weather was lovely. Oh..and there were 2 wedding groups. How awesome!!
The place is a mandatory visit if you travel to Philly, that is clear. It's fame is indisputable, undeniable and it's somehow a historic place.However, be careful if it's raining and you cross the street just in front of the Rocky monument, the sidewalk gets very slippery and mi wife felt down. Where were all the cops that use to chase foreigners to give them traffic tickets? Oh yes, hiding from the rain.There were also two homeless guys asking for tips for pictures (they offer to take a picture of all the group for... 20 bucks!): one on top of the stairs and another one at the Rocky monument.Maybe this is very Philly, but I am not used to find homeless every corner.
This is such an inspiring place. I’ve seen the movies and grew up on the rocky movies as a teen. Coming here and actually seeing the statue and reading the quote on the plaque brings such nostalgia and motivation. Then, I climbed the steps and turned around. The view was refreshing and exciting. Sorta makes you feel like you can conquer the world. In that moment, there was no fear I could not defeat, no obstacle I could not overcome, and no challenge I could not conquer. This was a great place to visit because you can immerse yourself in the story while taking the story and applying to your life!
Ran about five miles and as cliche as it might have been I ran up the steps to the art museum as if I was Balboa himself. Kind of thought it would be a few more steps than it was lol... But awesome and nostalgic nevertheless... And if you happen to go in the museum it's even better.
Cool but don't sit in the middle steps, I sat there to eat a sandwich and this 300 pound man came tumbling from the top, must've lost his footing, and at 90 miles an hour smacked into me and threw me half way across the sidewalk. He's alright though, his name was Albert and I bought him icecream
No problems nor complaints during my last visit. Go Philadelphia
Yo Adrian! I did it! I took pictures with the Statue of Rocky Balboa and his iconic how winning is done quote engraved in the bottom, and then I climbed the steps all the way to the top by the fountain and took a picture where his footsteps are carved in stone! This was one of the coolest spots to ever take a photo and now there are fireworks going off in the distance, I love the city of Philadelphia! Will definitely be back with friends and family!
I'm a huge Rocky fan, so this review is biased. But I would 100% recommend getting up to the steps for sunrise. The steps face eastward so you get a good view. I also circled back round for sunset and the sky turns a real nice colour and there's a tonne of atmosphere to be soaked in. Also on the top step in the centre cladding is an imprint of Rocky's Converse. He's a size 8.
I finally got to visit the steps 43 years later after the Rocky movie release. Although there are many steps up to the museum, it's not that bad walking up. The view from the top is nice. The Rocky statue is located on ground level. There is a little line for taking pictures, but it moves pretty quick.
Gorgeous grounds of this museum. Parking on the street and a short wall to get to the museum. Philly was such a friendly city with a great vibe. You can take a picture with the Rocky statue, but it is at the bottom of the steps and around the corner. Apparently the museum does not consider it art, but threw the fans a bone and let him stay...just tucked out of the way of the actual steps. Would love to spend a day inside the museum.
You can take the PhillyPhlash bus which stops right at this attraction. If you're looking to get away from the flock of tourist, winter visits are a great idea (once you don't mind the cold). The spot is really just the stairs and a statue of rocky.
Amazing view of the city from this place. We reached during 5-10 mins early to sunset in December. The daylight view and night lights from there was amazing
These picturesque steps and memorable statue are beautiful in their own right but they also bring back memories of the Rocky movie. There's a nice big fountain across the street with a large monument. And a large art museum at the top of the steps. There was some construction on part of the museum while we were here in October 2019, but the museum and park we're still very accessible. There is a b-cycle station to the left of the steps if you feel like riding. The traffic circle goes across in front of the steps so it's not greasy to get here by car and pedestrian crossing is not super easy, but all around and behind the museum is lovely park and grounds.
Nostalgic and cool all at the same time..everyone remembers the first time they saw Rocky. You can take pics of the Rocky statue and run up the stairs. The Rocky theme gets stuck in your head. A definite if you visit Philly.
Visit the steps and make the run up the steps... while tourists and onlookers cheer you on. Its a lot of fun.
Awesome seeing this place, just as it was in the movie! The area was not overly crowded, this could be due to the afternoon hours. People were really friendly and willing to take photos for families.
Great place to visit for any fan of the movie. Here you can see the statue that appeared for the first time in Rocky 3. It's off to the right side of the stepsnot at the top of the steps that's appeared in themovie. Typically there's a short line but it's worth it to get your photo with the big bronze guy.then take a walk up the steps just like Rocky did turn around and take a great look at a beautiful city.spend some time and walk around particularly go around the back of the steps to waterworks that's great stride and a great view.
This is a beautiful landscape. The Rocky statue, the fountains, the steps, the Museum and the people who hike the steps for exercise. It's just awesome.
Loved it! 73 steps, I counted! Heads up: There are people at the top of steps who work on tips but they will take your picture for you. Didn't go into the museum just wanted to climb the steps, take some pictures with the rocky statue and be on my way. You get some excellent pictures from the top of the steps.
They were a little busy but everyone had their space and the moments they wanted! Great view from the top too! Pleasantly surprised by this adventure. Had no idea it was there!
I came here during the night time and I climb the Rocky steps. The skyline of the city looks beautiful from up there and the museum in the background also looks spectacular. There seemed to be a lot of people gathered here as well and there was a lot of motorcycle and bikers doing tricks. I would recommend coming here at night even if it's for a couple of minutes like I did.#stairs #skyline #Philadelphia #rocky #boxing
A Philly stable and a must for any Rocky fan. For anybody else, the art museum is a stunning architectural end to the parkway and offers a great view of the city. Worth a visit, even if you don’t go inside.
It's part of our culture. What are you gonna do? Hate on it? That being said, only tourists and locals showing out of towners the steps go to the front. If you wanna avoid the crowd, the Art Museum has a back entrance through some gardens which is very nice.
