Start your adventure now. Imagine yourself catching free outdoor concerts, shaking Ben Franklin’s hand on the streets of Old City, visiting world-class museums, enjoying vibrant public murals, attending theater performances, volunteering with your friends, riding the carousel in Franklin Square, and petting ponies at the Philadelphia Zoo. Philadelphia is all that and more.
The Philadelphia Center’s offices are located in the heart of Center City. A ten- or twenty-minute walk will take you to half a dozen theaters, several major art and science museums, Rittenhouse Square’s boutiques, Old City’s galleries, the Kimmel Center, the Italian Market, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and scores of top-notch restaurants.
While you’re living in Philadelphia, be sure to catch a bus to New York, Boston, Washington D.C., or Atlantic City—all just a few hours from your new home.
And thanks to William Penn’s simple grid system, Philadelphia is easy to navigate and perfect for sightseeing. Your feet will do the walking, SEPTA will take you where your feet can’t, or you can give a cab a wave and be on your way.
You’ll soon be so confident and comfortable in your new city that tourists will stop you to ask for directions.
