Fall is around the corner, and for many Philadelphians that means one thing: the Philadelphia Eagles. Football season is quickly approaching, and with it comes the notoriously (but still wonderfully) crazed fans. What makes this even better is the opportunity to attend the Eagles’ Training Camp in the month of August and get a taste of the season to come.
Eagles alumni will be in attendance to give you their autograph, and young fans can receive cheer lessons from actual Eagles cheerleaders. In addition to other games and family fun, there is something to do for the entire family at the training camp. View live demonstrations of football techniques from USA Football certified coaches, or simply relax in the stands and watch the practice.
Make an entire trip out of your time in Philadelphia. Explore the sights, whether it is with family, friends, or by yourself. Take your kids to The Franklin Institute and see The Science Behind Pixar exhibit, or head to one of the many great bars around the city to kick back after a long day.
At any point during your day (that’s right- literally 24/7), indulge in a warm, fresh cheesesteak from Geno’s. A spot many famous faces have traveled to, 9th and Passyunk Avenue offers the best steaks in the city. What day at training camp is complete without a detour to Geno’s?
Philly is a place with endless history, and it doesn’t stop with the fifty years of service that Geno’s has provided its guests. Stop by after watching the birds fly, and kick off football season the right way.
