Philadelphia is among the oldest and most beautiful cities in the United States. The city served as a temporary capital before Washington DC was built and was where the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were adopted.
Over the years, the city has earned many nicknames, but is best known as Brotherly Love and Philly City. If you’re visiting the city in the near future, be sure to take some great photos. TechJunkie will provide Instagram caption ideas.
Liberty Bell Captions
The Liberty Bell is one of the most famous landmarks in the city of Philadelphia and the entire United States. It does not work and does not play. Instead, it serves as a tribute to all who fought for the independence of the United States. The bell is located near Independence Hall and is free to visit.
The captions on photographs taken at Liberty Bell Center should reflect dignity and responsibility. They should express your view of freedom and its meaning. There is no room for rudeness and profanity in the descriptions of such photos. Take a look at our samples to get your creative juices flowing.
- “While it is silent now, the message of the Liberty Bell is as loud and important as it was when it was made.”
- “’Declare FREEDOM to all inhabitants of the land.’ We must never forget these words.”
- “The Liberty Bell is a must see if you are in Philadelphia.”
Independence Hall Headers
If you’re planning to visit Philadelphia, one of the nation’s first capitals, you should find some time to visit Independence Hall. It is where the two most important legislative acts in US history – the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence – were adopted. It is located on Chestnut Street in the southern part of the city.
This awe-inspiring building deserves your best captions. If you’re planning to take a photo of the building or take a selfie near it, you should find something dignified and serious, especially if you plan to upload it to your Instagram or Facebook profile. Here are some suggestions:
- “Where the freedom and laws of this country are forged.”
- “This magnificent building is a symbol of the freedom and independence of this country.”
- Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA. What an amazing sight to see!”
Benjamin Franklin Parkway Captions
Benjamin Franklin Parkway is located in the heart of Pennsylvania’s capital city. The one-mile-long street is home to many of the city’s museums and other major attractions. It starts in front of City Hall and ends at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Notable landmarks along the street include the Rodin Museum, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter and Paul, and the Parkway Central Library.
The scenic boulevard has a very formal and academic atmosphere, located in the heart of the city’s cultural district. Descriptions of photos and selfies taken here should be carefully crafted, and you may want to add a word or two about the places you visit or the statues featured in the photos.
- “I just finished my visit to the Pennsylvania Museum of Art. I was speechless.”
- “An early morning walk on the Ben Franklin Parkway is the best way to start the day.”
- “Guess the sculptor’s name. Let’s see how well you know his art.”
Rocky Sculpture Heads
In 1976, when the eponymous movie was released, no one could have predicted how big and important Rocky would be. The underdog and unlucky boxer from Philly quickly became a pop culture icon and a role model for teenagers. In 1981, a 10-foot statue of Rocky was placed atop the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for the filming of “Rocky III.” It remains one of the most popular places in the entire city.
Take a deep breath, blow “Gonna Fly Now” into your headphones, and run up the stairs of the museum like Rocky does in the movie. Feel the adrenaline as you climb to the top. This will definitely inspire you to write some of the best and most exciting captions in your life. Take a look at our examples.
- “Get out of bed early and refuse to sleep until it covers the whole day!”
- “If I could run these stairs, believe me, you can achieve anything!”
- “Arise and conquer! There is nothing and no one who can stop you!”
Town Hall Captions
City Hall is one of the most famous landmarks of the City of Brotherly Love. It is also the largest and most expansive city hall in the United States. Between 1894 and 1904, it held the title of the world’s tallest livable building. The building is located at the southeast end of Ben Franklin Parkway.
Thanks to its monumental size and the equally imposing buildings around it, the Town Hall can dwarf visitors. Taking selfies with the building as the background is one of the most popular activities among tourists. Take a look at our sample titles for inspiration.
- “If you think the town hall is right behind me, you are wrong. I am hundreds of meters away”.
- “Look at this architectural gem. God, look at the size of that building.”
- “I wonder how people on the street look from the top of City Hall. Probably like ants.”
Love Statue Headers
What better landmark than love itself for a city called the City of Brotherly Love? The symbol of love we are talking about is the legendary LOVE statue by Robert Indiana. The statue is located in John F. Kenedy Plaza, unofficially called LOVE Park. If you’re in Philly and need some love and warmth, go find the LOVE statue.
The statue itself reads “love” and is dedicated to love in and around it. So, if you are around and have a camera or phone with you, you should take a selfie or two for your Instagram profile. Make sure the subtitles are about love and romance. Take a look at our examples.
- “In the end, love will save the world.”
- “The world would be a much better place if there was a little more love and understanding between people.”
- “I send love and good vibes to all my followers. I love you all guys!”
Tradition, Culture, Love
If Philadelphia could be described in three words, they would be tradition, culture and love. It also has more sights worth seeing than many other US cities. Good photos require good captions and you’ll find plenty of inspiration for those in Philly. Our suggestions can also help.
