Philadelphia's New Summer Tradition

Summer Festival Road Trip: Jay-Z's Made in America was a hit in 2012. Will it live up to the hype in 2013?

(Continued from Page 1)

Since you'll be on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for the festival, visiting one of Philly's awesome museums is a must. Whether you prefer to run up the "Rocky Steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway) or visit the Franklin Institute (222 N. 20th St.) and catch a film at the Imax theater, you'll find something to your liking. (If you opt for the art museum, be sure to go the day before or after MIA, since the entrances to the museum will be inaccessible during the festival.)
