Sneak Peek: Inside Philly Mag’s June Issue

Our June issue drops this week. Here’s what’s inside.


The June issue of Philadelphia magazine is on its way to mailboxes, and it’s packed with content that gets at the heart of life in the Philly region right now. Here, just a few of the big stories that print subscribers will get to read before anyone else:

Hush Money: Have you noticed that rich people… look different these days? That’s the driving idea behind our June cover story. Ostentatious displays of wealth are out, casual elegance and down-to-earth sensibilities are in; our Christine Speer Lejeune explores why people with money are keeping their affluence on the down low, and what it means.


The Re-Re-Re-Re-Rebirth of Atlantic City: With summer kicking into high gear, Victor Fiorillo, Philly’s biggest fan of the storied-but-troubled Jersey Shore resort town, makes the case that A.C. is about to get hot—and, no, we’re not talking about global warming. Why developers, restaurateurs and entertainment folks are betting big, and why this time the whispers of an A.C. revival might actually pan out.


Park It! Summer isn’t just about the shore. Parks—not the kind at the end of the block; rather the kind you can hike, bike and paddle through—have seen a big upswing in interest. To help you commune with nature this season, Bailey King has put together an indispensable—and exhaustive!—guide to the treasure trove of amazing parks within driving distance of Philadelphia. Whether you’re into extreme sports or extreme relaxation, she’s got you well covered.


The Badass Days of Boring Bob: Remember when Senator Bob Casey was, well, just another uninspiring U.S. Senator? Robert Huber dives into Casey’s evolution from humdrum legislator to anti-Trump firebrand.


Tip Me Over: What good is a refreshing pitcher of lemonade without a showstopper of a pitcher to pour it from? June’s Scout department will help you slake your guests’ thirst in style.


And that’s just the tip of of the iceberg. Subscribe now and get the June issue in your mailbox this week—before any of these great stories hit the web.
