Kid Friendly Philadelphia: SOCIETY HILL

Posted on: September 19, 2013

Society Hill— “Society Hill is one of the most pleasant areas in Philadelphia. The neighborhood, loosely defined as the area between Walnut, Lombard, Front and 8th streets contains the largest concentration of original 18th and early 19th century architecture of any place in the United States. A small-town feel in the big city with vigilance, Society Hill keeps itself a family-friendly “little village.” (Source: A View On Cities / Philly.com)
