This year’s Guide to Philly features neighborhood guides written by students and recent grads. In this mini-guide to The Waterfront, we cover things to do, places to eat and everything YOU need to know to enjoy the neighborhood!
As told by Kayla Brown, Jefferson University 2024
I love The Waterfront because of all the possibilities available. You can tailor your plans to see, do, and explore whatever you want!
My go-to foodie spot is Philly Taco. They have the best Birria tacos, burritos, tostadas, and more. A lucky find you should definitely check out is the vintage arcade at Spruce Street Harbor Park! It’s an iconic Philly spot, with food and drinks, great views, boardwalk games, and more.
If you’re looking for an ideal study spot, I’d recommend Waterfront Cafe—beautiful views, too! The best part about The Waterfront is its walkability. All the parks on the Waterfront are walkable and nearby to one another, making is super easy to get around!
