Welcome to Old City
While Old City is undoubtedly the birthplace of America, it remains one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Philly. Its proximity to Independence Hall, Penn’s Landing, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge make Old City a favorite for the residents who call it home. People love the neighborhood for its fashionable boutiques, great restaurants, eclectic galleries and theaters, and vibrant nightlife. Especially popular on first Fridays of each month, art lovers fill the streets for year-round art walks and hop from gallery to gallery.
