Explore the Museum without Walls, Philly's tour of public art
Philadelphia has more than 1,000 sculptures, everything from figurative works to pop art and contemporary pieces. Now you can see them all in self-guided tours.
The Association for Public Art website has downloadable maps and audio files that you can listen to on the go highlighting the public art on display. Each of the tours has the distance marked and an indication of whether it's bike or pedestrian-friendly.
It's a great time to explore the sculptures along the Schuylkill River and around the Horticultural Center, where the cherry trees are blossoming and the daffodils are in full bloom.
If you're homebound, you can explore the outside without ever leaving your couch. Call it armchair culture.

Philly's bagel boom continues with new Spread Bagelry
Philadelphia's bagel scene is on the rise.
Spread Bagelry makes them 'Montreal style' -- instead of being boiled in regular water, they are boiled in honey water, and then baked in a wood-fired oven.
The chain started in 2011 with one small shop in Rittenhouse, and now has five locations. We visited their new 'Spread-quarters' on Walnut Street that also boasts a patio and a bar.
