Looking for some fun and unique things to do in Philly this weekend? We’ve got you covered.

‘The FRIENDS Experience: The One Near Philadelphia’

On display until May 29 at the KOP Mall, this interactive and immersive pop-up delves fans into the world of Ross, Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey with set recreations and different scenes from the show having the spotlight put back on them.

The nostalgia-packed activation features Monica and Rachel’s kitchen, Central Perk, the opening fountain credit shots from the show, and much more. Additionally, fans can fully step into famous situations from the series whether it be helping Ross pivot his sofa up the stairs, or sitting in Joey and Chandler’s favorite recliner. 

Timed entry tickets are available starting at $32 plus taxes and fees.

640 W Dekalb Pike, King of Prussia,


The 45-minute Hydroga experience takes Philadelphians to the 7th floor of the W Hotel Philadelphia venue. W Philadelphia partnered with The Lab—the city’s own concierge for health and human performance—to find new ways to use its WET Deck pool, which is heated to 98 degrees in the winter/early spring season.

Dave from The Lab leads the group (which spans 14-15 people every Sunday) through the underwater class, which involves a combination of dynamic, therapeutic and even philosophical movements that lead to one practice—healing.

While at Hydroga, Philadelphians check in at the W’s AWAY Spa. You get a robe for the duration of your experience, and you’re able to change in the locker room (note that you keep your stuff with you on the Deck, which has plenty of space), and you can use the same facilities to shower when class is done. Afterward, a coffee and juice bar is available, or, you could spend your time having a bit more of a dip in the pool. Tickets come out to be $45, and the next class takes place March 12 at 10:30 am.
