Center City represents the diversity of our great city. Three generation of architecture, horticultural splendors and access to the arts – fine and lively – abound. Defined by South Street to the south, the Delaware River to the east, the Schuylkill River to the west, and Vine Street to the north, Center City is at the nexus of Philadelphia’s cultural, economic, and residential activity. Center City includes Philadelphia’s central business district and many of the city’s central neighborhoods. Neighborhoods such as Logan Square, Fitler Square, Rittenhouse Square, the Avenue of the Arts, Midtown Village, Washington West, Society Hill, and Old City comprise Center City’s red-hot real estate market. With a 98 Walk Score and easy access to public transportation and major highways, Center City offers the best of education, shopping, retail and outdoor activities for those who wish to enjoy a comprehensive urban experience without giving up a familiar community feel. Winter in Dilworth park is magical, complete with ice skating at the Rothman Rink, the “Made in PHL” specialty pop-up shopping experience and a City Hall light show spectacular. Foodies love to indulge in Restaurant Week and ‘Sips’ and for good reason. Travel + Leisure says, “Forget New York or Boston — Philadelphia Might Just Be the Best Food City on the East Coast Right Now.” You might not know that actor Kevin Bacon’s father is famous urban planner Edmund Bacon, who served as the executive director of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission from 1949 to 1970 and is referred to as the "father of modern Philadelphia." Everyone loves to cut loose in Center City come the weekend as there’s no shortage of see-and-be-seen haunts as well as hide-away intimate spots for two on the town.
