Philly is a city you can spend your entire life in and never run out of things to do, but finding those things to do can present its own challenge. To make the challenge a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of the top social media movers in Philly. These accounts and websites were chosen because they’re always up to date, on top of things, and in the know – in other words, exactly where you want to be.
Uwishunu is a breath of fresh air in the “what to do that I haven’t already done” world and the perfect digital destination for tourists and locals alike. Not only do they stay on top of the latest events, they provide cut-to-the-chase information without superfluous details. Whether you’re looking for the most popular eateries or a comprehensive list of free activities in Philadelphia, Uwishunu has you covered.
Philly Foodies is an Instagram account that could add a few thousand calories to your life, and that’s a beautiful thing. Their Instagram features gorgeous food photography and the kind of variety you’d normally have to visit a buffet to see (if that buffet was high class and fried, gooey goodness). Following their Instagram will land you instant eye candy and local restaurant recommendations all at once.
For the latest city news, deals, and Philadelphia-exclusive lifestyle updates, be sure to check out the ubiquitous Philly Mag. This local magazine does more than cover the latest events – they also host a few of them, ranging from foodie-centric happenings to wine festivals to architectural showcases.
