All the good things about Philadelphia in one neat place

    It’s Valentine’s Day, and date or not, you’ll find love in Philadelphia today. We are (or were), afterall, the city that loves you back.


    Gearing up for the Feb. 17 launch party, Philadelphians are clogging the Twitterverse with their reasons for loving our city. And if you haven’t, you should.

    Let’s put our gripes with the commissioners, sheriffs, Parking Authority and Streets Department aside and talk about #whyilovephilly.

    Here’s some of the latest love going around:

    cschrader: “smelling the nilla wafers roasting while driving out the boulevard”
    yikesinc: “The awesome sustainability movement and ingenuity of all the people working to make Philly great.”
    tibastral: “because of the café on spruce & 11 where you can find real french croissants & really awesome espressos”

    General or specific, there are a million reasons to love Philadelphia. Share yours with #whyilovephilly.
