Despite the warm weather, the hustle
and bustle of city living hasn’t slowed. However, the end of the summer will be
here before we know it, which means we should pump the brakes on our busy lives
and get out and about to enjoy the sunshine! Luckily, there are lots of ways to
do that near your 1500 Locust apartment: rooftop bars, summer festivals and
even outdoor exercise classes. If you’re trying to keep it simple (and free),
break out the picnic basket and grab some grub, a blanket and your favorite people
and head to your nearest green space for a day of soaking up rays with some
good food and company.
Center City is filled with lots of
green spaces—from quaint and charming historic squares to some of the region’s
most famous public areas. Rittenhouse Square Park checks both of those
boxes—and offers more to look at than just about any other park in the city!
Located just two blocks from your
1500 Locust apartment, Rittenhouse is a convenient spot for a relaxing
afternoon—without barely any travel time taking up your fun. Rittenhouse is
steeped in history, as one of the original parks originally conceived of by
Philadelphia’s founder, William Penn, in the 1600s.
However, the park is also a modern
marvel—surrounded by some of the city’s leading restaurants, high-rise
buildings and luxury shopping. Grab an iced coffee at one of the local cafes
and spread out on your blanket to take in the laidback atmosphere in the park,
popular with everyone from dog walkers to local office workers to artists, many
of whom set up shop along the benches that sit in the park to paint or sketch
the surroundings. From award-winning architectural marvels to the lush greenery
that surrounds the many winding paths, the park offers a feast for the senses!
So lather on the sunscreen, grab
your shades and head down the street to Rittenhouse Square Park to chill out
before summer heads out of Philly!
