“Where Philly's Finest Gather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

In the midst of the city hubbub lies an oasis of urban solitude and treats. Rittenhouse Square sits in the heart of Center City's restaurant district and is a superb place to sit and people watch while sipping a cup of coffee.

“Great for people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Rittenhouse Square is a nice place to be able to sit and just watch people, not to mention rest your feet after shopping. Many top-notch restaurants are located around it and shopping is just footsteps away.

“Always something to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Our latest visit was a professional art show; it was excellent. During the year there may be concerts, families playing, professionals munching their lunches, pets being walked, flowers, trees, lights. It's a nice island of green in the city!
