Rittenhouse Routes

·         Rocky's Route - 10 miles 

Philadelphia takes a leading role in the iconic Rocky franchise. We’ve mapped out a route that takes you to some iconic places highlighted in previous Rocky movies. You’ll start by passing Victor Café, a historic Italian restaurant that plays a key role in the franchise, transformed into “Adrian’s” in Rocky Balboa and the film Creed. Next, you’ll run through Philly’s Italian Market. During Rocky’s famous run, he was joyously greeted by vendors as he ran through the nation’s oldest and largest working outdoor market. From there, head to Independence Hall and try to replicate Rocky’s famous bench hurdling scene in Rocky II before making your way to the Philadelphia Zoo, where Rocky proposed to Adrian. You’ll then take in the sites of the 19th-century boat houses on Boathouse Row along the Schuylkill River as spotted in Rocky Balboa, and then finish off with the iconic Rocky Steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art before running through Rittenhouse Square Park and then back to the hotel. You’ll be in fighting shape in no time!


·         Route One - 11 miles Route One provides an uninterrupted walking/biking trail along the scenic Schuylkill River Banks via the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Feel free to make this route longer or shorter, it extends through the entire city!
