“Beautiful.. But beware of your surroundings”
Review of Kelly Drive

This is a beautiful park.. I saw people jogging and bike riding... I also saw individuals have barbeques. What I also noticed was as the sun started to go down, unscrupulous individuals started coming out of the shadows.. Did not feel unsafe. But, my spidy sense was tingling.

This is the best place to train for the Philadelphia Marathon because part of the route is on the Drive. The view is spectacular from the Art Museum all the way to the Falls Bridge. You may even get treated to certain events such as regattas and dragon boats on the river. It does get a bit croweded on weekends so make sure to check the schedules if you want to avoid the crowds.

Kelly Drive is a pleasant area located just west of the Philadelphia Art Museum where all kinds of people get together for picnics, biking, jogging, running, walking, playing frisbee. Essentially it is a path that extends many street blocks. Be careful at night time; lots of creepers.

Please admire the sculptures along Kelly Drive. It's a gorgeous walking area along the River. It's named after a famous Philadelphian, after all. I'd start at Logan Circle and walk along Boathouse Row. Bring water, and wear comfy shoes. Just enjoy the views.
