I absolutely love winter in Philadelphia! And I’m probably one of the few people in Philadelphia who actually likes all the snow and freezing temperatures (this explains why I studied abroad in Denmark in the winter). I grew up in Washington, D.C. and always loved going sledding and building snowmen on snow days, but then my family moved to North Carolina where we were lucky if we even got an inch of snow! So I’m happy to experiencing snow again, especially in a city as pretty as Philadelphia (you can read more about when I moved to Philadelphia on my About Me page).
While we did get one messy storm with lots of ice that made walking and driving hazardous (in late March, no less!), winter storms have been pretty mild here. We didn’t get a blizzard like last year (you can view those photos here), but we did get some smaller snow storms, and they made winter in Philadelphia so beautiful. Annika absolutely loves the snow (I made a whole post of her playing in the snow!), so it’s always a lot of fun having a Siberian Husky during the winter! And I have lots of photos of her in this post 🙂
I took a lot of these photos at Rittenhouse Square, which is one of my favorite spots in the city. It’s a pretty big square with lots of statues and beautiful plants and trees, and as you can see, there’s so much to photograph! (I even featured it in one of last year’s posts with photos of the blizzard). So if you’re looking for a place to photograph winter in Philadelphia next year, I definitely suggest going to Rittenhouse Square.

One of my all time favorite photos is of this statue covered in snow from last year’s blizzard! (you can view it here)
I LOVE photographing icicles
Can you spot Annika photobombing?
Since we got some snow and ice in March, some flowers had already started blooming!
Philadelphia’s famous City Hall
These icicles were pretty cool!
I love daffodils, and they were still pretty in the snow!
It’s hard to photograph Annika in the snow because she gets so excited and won’t look at me 🙂
Does anyone else love winter in Philadelphia as much as I do? 🙂 If you’re over winter and ready for spring, check out my Spring in Philadelphia post to see some beautiful flowers!
