Have you ever been to Philadelphia? There are some great reasons to visit Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia. It's not really a fountain though, Located on Market Street in the Old City of Philly, there is an old-style ice cream shop called the Franklin Fountain. It is open all year round and is one of the coolest spots in the city. (I know the pun was cheesy but it just felt right). It is so popular that it even made an appearance on the show "Man vs. Food" back in 2010. The best time to go is right at 12 pm, which is when the shop opens. Have a cheat day and get ice cream for lunch because if you wait until after lunch like everyone else, you will be waiting in a long line that goes down the street. Thankfully, I haven’t experienced the long line and got my ice cream right away. So what are the reasons to visit Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia?
1. Old-time Feel
The parlor is like going back to a time when there were soda jerks and wooden cash registers. The servers wear bow-ties, funny hats, or have slicked-back hair as they treat you with handmade ice cream. That old-time feel is one of the best reasons to visit Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia.
