The first official day of summer is on Friday (for the northern half of the world, at least), so we thought we’d kick it off right: with a special edition of I Heart My City. (By the by, for those of you who live in hot climes and want to get away, it’s a great time to visit the Southern Hemisphere.)
Here are 20 summer must-dos from I Heart contributors in 20 cities around the world:
Larissa and Michael’s Philadelphia (USA): Take in a Phillies baseball game. We love our Fightin’ Phils, and have set records for the most continuous sellout crowds. The ballpark is beautiful, the food good, and the atmosphere electric. I’d recommend going to one of the night games around Independence Day (July 4) when there are fireworks after the game.
Emily’s Munich(Germany): Grill out at the Isar, visit as many biergartens as possible, take a bike ride through the English Garden (you can sunbathe nude in designated areas if you dare), and last, but not least, watch a movie under the stars.
Wherever you are, what’s your favorite thing about your city in the summer? Tell us about it in the comment section below.
