The Benjamin Franklin Parkway is also known as the Museum District. The broad, diagonal street connects City Hall with the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Lined with flowers, sculptures, and flags from around the world, its design was inspired by Paris's Champs-Elysées. It is about a mile long and offers many classic photo ops along the way.
