Where to see the Philadelphia skyline

Wanna up your skyline game??

There are quite a few spots around Philly that have an amazing view of the prettiest city skyline in existence (am I biased? Nahhhh). Here is my list of some of the best places to watch the sun set on the skyline (or for pictures with the skyline), from most obvious to hidden gems!!!

Art Museum Steps

This is probably the most obvious. But how often do you actually make the trip out there to take in the skyline? If you don’t want to be surrounded by tourists sprinting up the steps, I recommend this spot near sunrise.

Cira Green

If you want to drink a beer while watching the sun set over the skyline, this place is for you. ‘Nuff said.

Benjamin Franklin Bridge

If you don’t mind getting some steps in & you’re not terrified of heights, this is a beautiful spot to take in the beauty of the skyline!!! It’s one of my favorite places to run when I want a beautiful view. Ladies (and some dudes), just make sure you have your hair tied back because it can get a bit windy!

Waterfront Park in Camden

So the view from the bridge sounds nice, but you’d rather stand on solid ground … I gotchu. This is a super similar view, you just need to get yourself to Jersey!

Water Works Gazebo

In keeping with the Art Museum theme, this is a great place to see the skyline and the river come together. If you’re near Boathouse Row, this is a must!!!

South Street Bridge

Runners, this one’s for us. While the iconic South Street Bridge is the beginning of many a group run, it also boasts a fantastic view of our favorite city. If you’re walking along the trail, be sure to hit up the dog park bridge at Spruce Street for another great view!!

MLK Drive Bridge / Spring Garden St Bridge

This one is a personal favorite 🙂 I run/bike on MLK bridge allllll the time and the view of the river leading up to the skyline is just unparalleled, in my humble opinion. Every time a couple books a session at the Art Museum, I bring them to this spot!!! (Right above this bridge is the Spring Garden Street Bridge; I prefer MLK Drive because there are no cars!)

Belmont Plateau

Even though I said MLK Drive is my favorite skyline view, this is my favorite place to watch the sun set over the skyline. You can bring a blanket, have a picnic, catch up with friends, you name it! Just don’t expect peace and quiet … it’s a pretty popular spot!!

Lemon Hill

Another must if you’re near Boathouse Row!! This doesn’t capture the full skyline, but it does offer more peace & quiet. My boyfriend and I brought a blanket & picnicked here before a Phillies game and it was LOVELY.

Not having a 10th spot is bugging me so if you know of another place, please let me know in the comments!!!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
