PHILLY EXPERIENCES

From historical walking and soul food tours to party buses to transformative community healing sessions in nature, every experience we design with passion, joy, community building and economic growth in mind. 

With 7 billion tourism dollars generated every year in Philadelphia, we choose to use our experiences to reroute tourism dollars to Black survival and growth of our Black and local businesses in this majority Black city.

“Travel changed me and it only took one trip to do so,” shares Watts. From her own experience learning about the issues faced by locals on a spontaneous trip to Barbados, Watts came up with the idea to share her story and the stories of her community — her black, LGBTQIA+, hood culture community — with travelers through her Morals & Murals Hood Tour.
