Philadelphia's Magical World Of Mosaics
This "magic garden" may not have any plants but it is a magical experience to wander the mosaic labyrinth. This extensive mosaic space helped save a neighborhood and create a artistic eclectic district. There are mosaics that spring out of alleges, independent boutique shops, and a diverse selection of food choices around this Magic Garden. It's a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The Magic Garden is a destination and worthy of exploration.
