I went to Philly with the express intent to run the Rocky steps, something I've wanted to do since I first saw the movie as a kid. Little did I know that they started setting up for the draft that's happening in Philly a month in advance, meaning that he stairs were completely blocked by a giant stage! Not the prettiest sight and surely not something I could run up. While disappointed, this trip reminded me of an important travel tip — always leave something to come back for! And whether I had run the steps or not, I will most definitely be back.
