Rocky Statue, Philadelphia
(3.5/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Take a photo with the bronze replica of one of film's greatest boxing heroes at Rocky Statue, located at the base of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This statue was created for Rocky III, and after the movie was finished, Syllvester Stallone, the actor who brought Rocky Balboa to life, donated it to the City of Philadelphia. Now, the statue stands at the bottom of the stairs, known as the “Rocky Steps." Run to the top, recreating the iconic moment in the underdog's training montage, and take in a view of the city as you feel the rush. Remember to pack your camera and running shoes before you head out to pay tribute to Rocky.

  • Philadelphia is synonymous of the stairways in which Rocky trained. If you're tired or not, I went up the stairs. Although it required effort, it should be done.
