Our Favorite Philadelphia Neighborhoods: Rittenhouse Square

In this series of blog posts, we’ll be exploring some of our favorite neighborhoods in Philadelphia- Including places to eat, what to see rittenhouse-square-philadelphia-spring-587 (1)and what to do. As well as spending some time exploring the real estate stats of that neighborhood. This time around we’ll be exploring Rittenhouse Square. One of Philadelphia’s oldest and most popular neighborhoods.

Rittenhouse Square begins and ends with Rittenhouse Square park. The park itself was part of William Penn’s original plans when Philly was first founded. The condos and homes surrounding the park itself are some of the popular (and most expensive) in the city. The prices may be relatively high, but those amazing views make it all worth it.

 

Where to Eat: Besides easy access to the park, public transportation and the rest of Center City, Rittenhouse Square is home to a diverse mix of restaurants and eateries. Whether you want something simple like coffee and pastries at La’colombe (19th and Walnut), burgers at 500 degrees (15th and Sansom) or steak and cocktails at Butcher and Singer (15th and Walnut), Rittenhouse Square’s food scene has got something for everyone!

What to See: Besides the aforementioned natural beauty of Rittenhouse Square park, Rittenhouse is home to some great live music venues- Inlcuding the Kimmel Center or for some more indie-centric live music, the First Unitarian Church. And if you’re looking for something more informative (and just a bit creepy) you need to see the Mutter Museum.

Real Estate: Considering the many amenities, Rittenhouse Square tends to be more expensive than most Philly neighborhoods, but there’s still plenty of chances to find some great homes. In fact right now, there are 130 active listings in the Rittenhouse Square zip code. Click here to get real estate market info about Rittenhouse Square.
