Things To Do

When we say there is something for everyone here, we really mean it.
Each neighborhood has its own vibe; there are museums galore, covering multiple cultures and oddities you would never think could exist in such mass quantities. The music scene is always hoppin’; everyone wants to play here. Sports? Well, our teams are some of the most talked about…for a variety of reasons. And the food. You’ll never eat as good as when you’re in Philly—Mexican, Indian, Italian, Chinese, plus local favorites such as cheesesteaks, water ice and pretzels.
Use your time here to explore and experience everything you can. Trust us—at the end of four years, you’ll want more time.
