Join the warm-weather party (May through October) at Spruce Street Harbor Park along the Delaware River. The attraction features a Boardwalk promenade buzzing with food stalls manned by local businesses like Franklin Fountain, Village Burger, Chickie’s and Pete’s, Distrito and more selling pizza, tacos, cheesesteaks, fried chicken, funnel cake, doughnuts and ice cream. There’s also a floating beer garden in the harbor where you can score more food and drinks amongst greenery and spectacular views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and its watery surroundings.

More inland, things get even dreamier, with trees that drip with neon lights and and more than 50 hammocks where you can chill with your sweetie and take in the scene. A common area nearby provides seating around a water fountain, and oversized game boards, where you can challenge friends over a round of bocce, ping pong, Connect Four, chess and shuffleboard.

Spruce Street Harbor Park also plays home to a staggering number of events throughout the season, including paddle board yoga, a Jazz in the Park concert series and an event every Friday night called Lights + Flights, which is essentially a beer tasting and light show all in one. The Punk Rock Flea Market and a farmers’ market from Greensgrow Farms sets up for shoppers on weekends.

If you're visiting Philly in the summer, this is where everyone will be hanging out after a long week! It's a gorgeous little water front area that has a ton of food and drink vendors. I never knew about it until a friend who moved there for school. It closes around end of September so get there when it's warm!
