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.

If your a rocky fan this is a must see! I walked down Benjamin Franklin Pkwy which is worth the walk to the scene of a school bus full of kids running up the stairs of the museum just like Rocky. Lots of energy. The statue sits next to the museum. A line had formed to stand next to the statue but went real fast. Too cool
