City Smart: Philadelphia



Philly’s robust nightlife is no secret. (Even the speakeasies are well known.) But now Longwood Gardens has become one of the few botanical destinations worth visiting after dark. Starting at dusk, experience the brand new, transformative luminary exhibit, Nightscape, where a kaleidoscopic light show paints the grounds in living color paired with music and sound effects. Another bright idea: stop by Longwood’s Beer Garden for a quick bite or a cool brew—crafted especially for the gardens by Pennsylvania’s own Victory Brewing Company. Runs Wednesday through Saturday, with live music on Thursday nights. Through Oct. 31. Tickets, $17-$27.
