Welcome to Fairmount
Home to Philly’s world-class museums, Fairmount is known for its fine art — but art isn’t the only draw for this northern neighbor of Center City. While families enjoy the Philadelphia Zoo, Fairmount Park, and tours of the spooky Eastern State Penitentiary museum, younger crowds enjoy Fairmount Avenue's cafes and bistros. At night, lights from Boathouse Row create a spectacular view that shouldn’t be missed. Families who move here enjoy its proximity to beautiful green spaces and a thriving food scene.
