Owner description: Penn’s Landing, the waterfront site where William Penn docked, is now the great gathering place for outdoor events, especially in warmer weather. A variety of concerts, presentations and athletic events celebrate this waterfront area where history mingles with present-day pursuits.

The river views are nice, but the real attraction is what is here and nearby -- restaurants, hotels (small and large), events, bars, all the things of the city.

This was real history, told in story form. As you looked at the Delaware River, you could imagine Penn's landing over 300 years ago, and the way this city has evolved since then.

We toured the USS Olympia, the last iron U.S. naval vessel from the pre WWI era. This ship is filled with exquisite wood working and just a look at a different time. There is also a WWII submarine you can tour too. The maritime museum has interactive displays that are great for kids.

From Dave and Busters to Hibachi, to the Concerts! Everything about Penn's Landing is amazing. When it is cold out, make sure you stop by the River Rink. It is not that expensive of a night out and it makes for a great time!

Ok, it's a waterfront but nothing really special to see here and I saw more beautiful places to take a stroll or to look at the water...
