Last weekend I enjoyed a wonderful visit to Philadelphia to see the world’s largest indoor flower show: The Philadelphia Flower Show. Botanical creativity is a one of a kind art form and the best of the best exhibit at this event.

Philly took me totally by surprise, it is city that is under the radar as it is situated between the big players of NY City and Washington DC. But I recommend taking the time to discover this historical city. Art, culture, architecture, parks, American history, music, food can be found throughout the city — and all at affordable prices. No sales tax on clothing and shoes alone makes visiting Philly an added bonus because everyone should bring home souvenirs for their closet.

The flower show is winding down this weekend but at Vacay.ca you can read and see some of the highlights in my photo essay and story.

There are lots of unique festivals scheduled in Philly for spring and summer. You should check out the 2013 Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (March 28 to April 27) and at the same time see Philadelphia’s other annual flower show, The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival (April 1 – 26).
