Rocky is art

If you are a Rocky fan this is a must do. I have never even seen the movies but I had to see this! It's right near the art museum so do both in one day!

Surprised that a statue was available for review on here! Yes it is probably a must see as it is near the foot of the 'Rocky steps' so it just has to be done on the typical tourist trail of Philly. So,there you go, it is a statue of Rocky, take the picture and move on!

A must for any Rocky fanatic. And of course tour the Art Museum while you're there. Lots to do in the area but be prepared to walk.

This iconic place was of course my 1st port of call whilst visiting the fine city of Philadelphia last month! 1st of all the Rocky Statue has been moved to the sides of the steps instead of at the top like it used to be, but still a very cool moment to see Rocky Balboa in front of you!

I have gone to the statue for years -- since its temporary home at the now razed Spectrum to its new home at the base of the home Anne built -- a prominent but not "top-of-building" inappropriate place for the statue most representative of the spirit of the man in everyone born in the Philly area -- that scrappy, wanna...

We are Rocky fans and were told the statue was no longer by the steps, but sure enough there it was! Happy to see it and take a picture with it. We ran the steps and played the theme song on our phone. It was a complete blast! There was a very small line for picture taking, but it was... More

You just cannot visit this city without doing the Rocky Statue and the Rocky Steps. Its a great photo spot but just be careful of the 'beggars' who try to 'help' you take a good picture and expect payment for doing so. Police are pretty hot on them but they return very quickly and can spoil your moment.

Glad this was a stop as part of our bus tour. Not worth a special trip but still kind of fun to see. Amazing how it's been commercialized though.

This statue is just to the right of the famous steps. Grab a quick picture and then walk/run up the steps for a good view of Philly.

So you take a photo by the statue and climb the famous stairs - very anticlimactic! Save your time in Philly for the historic places!
