Across the road from Rocky you will find the splendid and rather grand Washington monument, worth a wander across to soak up the vast and impressive size of it all, well worth a pit-stop.

This beautiful bronze statue depicting George Washington. i was told by someone that body and horse was not him nor his horse. Wonder how true that story was. It is right next to the Rocky steps and the Art Museum. Nice photo op.

Located in Eakins Oval, beautiful and huge statue of Washington on a horse. Makes a much better picture than the insignificant Rocky statue in front. Visited in June 2016.

Located at the Eakins Oval in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this area is worth a visit. This is a beautiful statue and park. The Rocky statue and steps are right across the road.
