Get Ready: Philly Will Be Snapchat’s Featured City Tomorrow

It’s finally happening.

After what feels like years of being looked over, Philadelphia will be Snapchat’s featured city — tomorrow. AKA, May 24, 2016.

This is not a drill, people.

You may remember, a long long time ago, how Snapchat used to feature a different city each day. [Editor’s note: Philadelphia was never featured.] Users were given a first-hand look into various cities all around the world, from Los Angeles to Ibiza to Hong Kong. We could get an intimate glimpse into their culture, see famous landmarks and experience life through their points of view.

Last summer, Snapchat introduced Cities of the World. Each day, a different city would be featured, leaving users in suspense as to when their city would be featured. But on that dreadful day in late August, Snapchat gave us a “Finale” to Cities of the World. There was no explanation, no reason and no word on if and/or when it would return. Many users, including a few Blasters, were quite devastated.

Now let’s fast-forward to nearly a year later after the shocking finale of Cities of the World, when all Philadelphia Snapchat users were given a gift today. Was it an apology from Snapchat? Or maybe a “We didn’t forget about you”? Either way, Philadelphia will be a featured city tomorrow. Talk about a great way to end the work week and get ready for the freakin’ weekend, baby.

Do you plan to submit a Snap to the Philadelphia story? What will it be? Let me know in the comments.


Due to inclement weather, Snapchat served Philly with a raincheck. Will we ever be featured? Stay tuned…


We’re back. See you tomorrow.
