Home to University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, it’s no wonder that this neighborhood is known as University City. If you’re free during the football season, be sure to see a U Penn game at Franklin Field.
Year round, students, teachers, and professionals mingle throughout town, catching a Philadelphia Dance Company show or checking out the latest installation at the Institute of Contemporary Art. All this creativity has permeated the neighborhood, with shops, restaurants, and galleries dedicated to a spirit of discovery and invention. Spend some time here and you’ll see that you don’t have to be a college student to absorb all the wonders of University City.
