Old City

Nightlife is most vibrant in Old City, where commercial buildings have been converted into loft apartments and you can enjoy a lot of square footage for your money! This neighborhood sits along Penn’s Landing with views of the Delaware River and Benjamin Franklin Bridge and concerts at Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center and the Navy Shipyard are just a short ferry ride away! First Fridays fill up local galleries here which are the most concentrated here. Home design and clothing boutiques line Second and Third Streets. Second Street is home to all sorts of late night entertainment from upscale dining at Amada to pubs like Triumph, Sassafras and Eulogy to independent rock shows at the Tin Angel. Brooke’s favorite ice cream shop, Franklin Fountain, sits near Front and Market. This area is rife with historical landmarks from Elfreth’s Alley to the Betsy Ross House. The Market Street area tends to be bustling at morning, afternoon and especially evening but if quiet is your preference. there are plenty of options around Race and Arch!
