Eats: For fresh and airy al fresco dining, Parc and Devon are our go-to bistros for great eats – including a delectable bread basket and steamy espresso with a side of people watching. Stop by Miel Patisserie for a macaron or three. Oui, s’il vous plaît!

Facades: Philadelphia is covered in French-inspired architecture and detailed facades. Even City Hall’s design mirrors qualities of French landmarks like the Louvre.

Art: The Rodin Museum and gardens house one of the largest collections of Auguste Rodin’s finest work (including his famous Thinker sculpture). If you aren’t feeling French enough at this point, take lunch at the lavender garden outside – you may just find yourself thinking you’re breathing the air in Provence. The Philadelphia Museum of Art also offers a large selection of French Impressionist art, including the works of Monet and Degas.
