8 of the Most Chill and “Summery” Things to Do in Philly Before August Ends!
September 22nd may be the official last day of summer but for most the end of August is the deadline. Come September school is back in session, the Eagles season starts, and Tastykake pumpkin pies are on the shelves. With that being said if you want to maximize the last days of the “unofficial end of summer,” we found 8 of the most chill and summery things to do in Philly before August ends. Of course all these events are outdoors and are serving up serious summer vibes. Check it out.
What’s a better vibe to have during the summer than a festive Caribbean vibe? If you’re like me and a trip to the actual Caribbean isn’t in the cards, this is the next best thing. Enjoy tropical drinks, tasty cuisine and beats. It’s almost like a mini staycation in the city.
This event actually runs until September 30th but if you haven’t took a Sunday to enjoy brunch on the barge, then you definitely need this on your list. Gather your friends or set up a chill date. There’s plenty of food to grub on, drinks to enjoy and views to soak up.
All summer long the Jazz in the Park series has been featuring some of the most talented jazz artists on the scene. Why not unplug yourself from iTunes and enjoy real life talent and the smooth sounds of jazz on a sunny day?
Here’s something for the nerds in all of us. The Academy of Natural Sciences is hosting a series of Dino Draft events at their beer garden. Enjoy light bites, board games and if you are looking to seek some shade the museum will be pay-as-you-wish!
This is self explanatory. BBQs and cook-offs are a staple in the summer. So what better way to close out the month than a large scale cook-off. Maybe Budweiser isn’t your first choice of beer but if you’re like me, it’s all about the grub anyways.
The best way to enjoy Spruce Street Harbor Park. Arguably the summer’s hottest local attraction during the summer, SHP sets the stage for the ultimate summer vibe with Lights and Flights every Friday 6-10 pm. The lights, the ambiance and flights of beers to relax with. Sounds like the perfect Friday night to us.
There are loads of beer gardens around Philly that could potentially be on this list but we’re going after the most unique. For instance The Mutter Museum is hosting this End of Summer Beer Garden event on August 30th. If you’re a fan of weird science and brews than why not put this on your bucket list.
The theme here is “chill.” So with that being said, Philly does have several spots such as Penn’s Landing, Dilworth Park and The Schuylkill Banks that screen outdoor movies. However, we’re going with West Philly’s Clark Park. A cool space that not many residents know about or frequently visit. So go off the beaten path and enjoy a great flick to close out the summer.
