Old City, sometimes known as “Olde City”, is the nation’s most historic square mile. The Old City District occupies several blocks between the Delaware River and Sixth Streets, bounded by Vine Street to the north and Walnut Street to the south. Philadelphia’s most popular historic attractions the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center and Betsy Ross House and much more are all just minutes from each other. The area is also near the Pennsylvania Convention Center and several nationally renowned hospitals. For shopping, visit the 3rd Street Corridor from Chestnut Street to Vine to enjoy art, design and fashion hosted by the region’s most exciting independently owned shops. It is one of the city’s most popular nightlife destinations, with many lounges, bars, fine quality restaurants and three Ritz movie theaters specializing in art films. During the popular monthly First Friday event, shops hold evening-hour open houses featuring art, design, and fashion. Penn’s Landing is on the waterfront, where you’ll find hotels, waterfront restaurants and the Great Plaza, the perfect place to take in a concert or to watch the fireworks.
The streets and most of the buildings are still of the original brick and stone. This vibrant old-world neighborhood’s housing stock is mostly comprised of rowhomes, many of which are Trinities, and converted loft condos.
