And enjoyable walk on a beautiful spring day

It was a beautiful spring day when we took a walk at Penn's Landing. Clean. Safe. Fun. Terrific vistas of water and ships.

Beautiful view of the waterfront, bridge, and New Jersey. Nice little pit stop when you are in the area visiting the other historical sites- Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, etc.

We took the metro from City Hall all the way to Penn's Landing. It is an easy walk over the pedestrian bridge, all the way down to the waterfront. On a very nice day (Blue Cross Broad Street Run), it was simply fantastic. Great view to the Ben Franklin Bridge, New Jersey, and all the way down the water front.... More

Great place to walk the crisp fall air, lots of Pubs just up the street, with loads of Pints and music to warm you up.

This is a nice place for a walk on the river. It was slightly raining when I went but still enjoyable. In the inter there is a ice rink.

We walked down for Winterfest when we stayed at the Omni, and it was a pleasant walk. (Except for the bone-chilling temps). It was so pretty, with mounds of little lights, trees and walk ways. The heated tents were warm enough, and there were board games scattered about to spend time, and food available for purchase. The ice skating rink... More

After seeing their brochure and their listing on the Visit Philly website, we certainly expected more. It turned out to be a small ice skating rink, a building with some video games and another building with food offerings. There were a few trees with lights and a view of the bridge and Camden waterfront. I think the parking lots .... More

Went down to the Penn's Landing area and visited the Winterfest area. We had allot of fun and enjoyed the family ice skating and the several spots they had setup in this area for families. The parking was $15, pretty standard for city areas these days. The ice skating was very cheap compared to NYC, only paid around $50 for... More
