Black Travel Highlights In Philadelphia

Philadelphia has soul. You can hear it in the music. You can see it in the vibrant street art and fashion. You can taste it in the food. For your next trip to Philly, here are a few new black travel highlights to add to your itinerary.

  1. Located in the historic neighborhood of Germantown, The Colored Girls Museum (4613 Newhall Street, thecoloredgirlsmuseum.com) is the first of its kind. Through memoir, art and artifacts, it honors the stories, experiences and history of women of color.
  2. Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse (2578 Frankford Avenue, (https://www.facebook.com/amalgamphilly/) is the first black, female-owned comic bookstore on the East coast. The quirky business combines owner Ariell Johnson’s passion for comic books (she’s a Storm superfan), community (the shop hosts game nights) and coffee (not to mention homemade cupcakes).
  3. Check out Fason De Viv (228 Arch Street, fasondeviv.com) to scoop up funky women’s fashion by local and national designers and vibe to acoustic performances on First Fridays.
  4. For date night done right, SOUTH (600 N. Broad Street, southrestaurant.net) is the newest restaurant from the Bynum Brothers (Warmdaddy’s, Relish). The sprawling eatery with three distinct dining areas is anchored by a skylight with dangling bottles and is accented by mason jars filled with pickled vegetables. South serves delish, elevated Southern cuisine (the fried green tomatoes with gulf shrimp appetizer is a must). There’s even an adjacent live jazz parlor.
