Photogenic wintertime backdrops in the Philly area?

Some friends have asked me to take their engagement photos; most of the obvious backdrops are cold and less attractive due to the weather. We're in Philly, where should we go?

The background: I'm no pro, but I have an SLR and all the lenses I could want to do this shoot. I don't have any off-camera lighting, though I do have an on-camera external flash for bounce and fill. Our first instinct is to head to Rittenhouse or one of the other parks, but that's less delightful when it's 25 degrees out; same problem at Bartram's Gardens. Where else can we go for cheap/free that would make a good backdrop for a standard couples shoot? I've got Longwood Gardens as a backup option, but not sure what else there might be closer to home.
