History Museum
“You can spend hours at this museum. The main audio tour is very well done and subsequent audio tours cover every possible subject as it related to incarceration in the US. This is a must-see for lovers of history. The neighborhood it is situated in is also lovely. Really enjoyable walk to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and other museums.”

“The Art Museum has always been one of my favorite places in Philadelphia. I love the location, very walkable. Actually if you have time to.spare I would recommend renting a bike (Belmont/Parkside) and taking a ride through Fairmount Park along MLK Drive and checking out the Water Works which is located on the back side of the Art Museum ”

Harbour / Marina
“Comprised of 15 homes and situated on Kelly Drive at The Schuylkill River, each house on Boathouse Row has its own rich history and is named after Philadelphia oarsman John B. Kelly Jr. who won the national singles championship eight times and was once president of the United States Olympic Committee. And it also looks simply magical all lit up at night with the lights reflected in the water.”

American Restaurant

“Jack's Firehouse is a true old firehouse, with a crew boat mounted above the bar, and a fireman's pole in the back. Its a cool spot to sit outside next to the Penitentiary where Al Capone was incarcerated. There are really friendly bar tenders who play DJ in evenings to a great mix of music. Entrees and appetizers are good, and there is seating in the back as well. Note: there are no TV's. ”
