Things To Do
Philadelphia has a tremendous number of available activities and a world-class food scene. Among our residents' favorite things to do: going out to eat at one of Philly's many BYOBs, catching a show at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, a trip to the Philadelphia Art Museum, going to a Phillies/Flyers/Eagles/Union game, or simply a bike ride along the Schuylkill River.

Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods - most of our residents live in the Center City district (Fitler Square, Rittenhouse, Old City, and Graduate Hospital neighborhoods), as well as University City. However, many residents, especially those with families, live in the surrounding townships and boroughs
