My day in Philly Wonderland

Traveling to new sites and seeing new places is one of my passions in life. Whether it’s a new city/country/state/ anything!! A couple of weeks ago I went on a road trip with close friends of mine to Philly- first time ever!! YES! I was so excited, road trips are the best especially with good people and great music 🙂 Unfortunately, we did not have much time to explore (def. going back soon!!) but we did go to the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and I fell in love! Art is a huge passion of mine and this place was just amazing!! It was right on South Street, which is the tourist-y area of Philly but still a lot of fun. If you ever are in this area- go visit!

“Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a mosaicked visionary art environment, gallery, and community arts center that preserves, interprets, and provides access to Isaiah Zagar’s unique mosaic art environment and his public murals. The Magic Gardens site, Zagar’s largest artwork, includes a fully tiled indoor space and a massive outdoor mosaic sculpture garden that spans half a block on Philadelphia’s famous South Street. Inside, visitors can view folk art statues, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, Zagar’s hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors. The installation pays tribute to Zagar’s artistic influences, along with community and personal experiences.”
