In this neighborhood you’ll find not only the best tourist attractions but also a vibrant nightlife. It is located just blocks away from Penn's Landing with attractions like Spruce Street Harbor Park and Blue Cross RiverRink. You are also a quick walk to the popular Morgan's Pier Beer Garden, Cavanaugh's River Deck, and Festival Pier (which has an awesome lineup of concerts all summer long). You can also walk along the cobblestone streets and experience the 18th-century charm as you discover the popular restaurants, boutique stores, and edgy art scene. My favorite activity in Old City is to walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge for the best views of the skyline! Please do not hesitate to reach out for more local suggestions.
