Get to Know Philadelphia for Free

There are still outdoor activities in the area that do not have an expensive admission price, even around Philadelphia the “City of Brotherly Love.”  Spring is the time when people start to emerge from their homes and reunite with the community.  Rafferty has found a few awesome outdoorsy things to do that won’t break your piggy bank and are right in the greater Philadelphia area.  So leave your credit cards behind this April, and have some fun outside in your Subaru!

Free Yoga at Race Street Pier

From April 2017 - November 2017

Yes, you heard right! This is a free activity.  Funded by the nonprofit Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC).  The DRWC is solely focused on helping and benefiting the City of Philadelphia, its citizens, and visitors of the City. Once the weather officially is nice enough to have consistent outdoor events, the yoga classes begin, (which began on April 10th).  The free classes fill the pier on a daily basis (weather permitting) from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.  With tons of classes offered, there is no reason to not participate in a 60 minute class.  There are even summer solstice classes!
