Philadelphia Neighborhoods

It's said that Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods, and there's no better way to get a taste of the City of Brotherly Love than to explore one of Philly's many distinct areas.

Center City — the core of downtown Philadelphia — encompasses some of the city’s busiest, most densely packed and most well-known cultural and historical neighborhoods, including Rittenhouse Square and Old City.

Heading north, south or west from Center City, hip enclaves (Fishtown), delicious corridors (East Passyunk), a veritable museum row (Logan Square/Fairmount) and more await.

And visitors stepping outside the city limits find that the Greater Philadelphia region offers everything from public gardens, arboreta and miles of open space to acres of grape vines and specialty shops.
