From the gorgeous skyline views to the history of the city, the city of Philadelphia offers hundreds of fun activities residents and visitors alike.

Axe Throwing

Looking for a new activity to try this weekend? With axe throwing facilities popping up across the country, the sport is quickly becoming the new bowling. Situated in warehouse-like settings, the axe throwing facilities are complete with high-ceilings, heavy-duty walls, and chain link fencing surrounding the throwing alleys to create a controlled environment.

If you give axe throwing a try and decide it was made for you, many axe throwing facilities also offer leagues that you can join!
