Philadelphia Downtown

Living in the center of an urban city has its perks, and Philadelphia is no exception. With an apartment in downtown Philadelphia you can explore the city day or night including nightlife, abundant parks, museums, and premium restaurants with a wide range of cuisine. Downtown Philadelphia has a lot to offer without the hassle of commuting, trying to find parking, and managing traffic. Walk out your door and you can explore! 

Apartment rentals in a city both big and small

Philadelphia is the second-largest city on the East Coast and the fifth-largest city in the country, yet it still has a small-town feeling. Apartment rentals are centrally located, so renters don't need a car to get out and enjoy life. You can also shop in markets, not supermarkets, and you'll find museums and high-quality restaurants are only steps away. Philly has good job opportunities in many sectors and professions, and its hiking trails are easily accessible.

Parks abound near apartments in Philly

Parks give you time and space to meet up with friends and family. Philly apartments are close to many recreational spots, including Washington Square, Rittenhouse Square, Logan Square, Franklin Square and Fitler Square. From Old City apartments and Ardmore apartments, you can walk to a variety of park locations for picnic lunches, doggy time and farmers market adventures.

Food is affordable and delicious

Philadelphia is one of America’s best food cities, with offerings that range from Israeli cuisine to handmade doughnuts. Dating to the 19th century, the recently renovated Reading Terminal Market alone features about 80 vendors and over 30 restaurants. You can get everything from the famous cheesesteaks to innovative vegan cuisine like jerk trumpet mushrooms, just minutes from locations like Northern Liberties apartments and Rittenhouse Square Apartments.

Philly is rich in art and history

Downtown Philadelphia has many options to view the arts, from artwork in local green spaces to the 17-day Fringe Festival. You can also enjoy movie nights in different parks, unique film festivals such as the First Person Arts film festival, and even opera and ballet. Philadelphia has many entertaining museums, from UPenn’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology to the Please Touch Museum. The latter features hands-on art, science and humanities exhibits. Learn the history of the early U.S. by walking the streets of the city, particularly the heart of the city.
