You Must Remember This

A kiss is still a kiss…
Philadelphia has some wonderful romantic places. Whether it is Valentine’s Day, a first date, or the fiftieth, a romantic setting is always prelude to a kiss. Of course when you are in love or falling in love, almost anywhere becomes special. Here are a few of the places where I love to fall in love.

Inside the magnificent Auguste Rodin Museum on the Parkway, you will find over one hundred stunning sensual sculptures by this French artist. Only the musee in Paris has more.

One cannot help but be moved and touched by these stones and bronzes given life by his hand. Among these treasures is a life sized sculpture entitled, ‘The Kiss’. You will be hard pressed not to do the samewith the one you love.

A lighter, more fun place, few think of as romantic, or a place to kiss, surprisingly has two romantic possibilities. The Franklin Institute is also on the Parkway.

You are having a good time learning about science and the one you are with, holding hands, laughing. On the second floor Science Center you arrive at the giant, walk-through, model heart. Thousands of Philadelphians, and I believe I do not exaggerate, have kissed inside this heart. Even if it is just a light kiss, as most are in here, you can’t break tradition.

The second place in the Franklin Institute many find romantic is the Fels Planetarium. You can sit underneath the stars in this low lit venue. ……Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars……

Even on a freezing cold day it can be a warm Spring night in this exhibit…….in other words, hold my hand, in other words, darling kiss me……

As time goes by these three Philadelphia romantic places should help your romance get started or continue.

You probably have some of your own romantic places in Philadelphia. I invite you to share them in the comment section. Happy Valentine’s Day
