We thought this section to be the most interesting part of downtown Philadelphia. The streets are clean, the row houses attractive and historical, and it has a real sense of pride and perspective. It’s also away from the hustle and bustle of the commercialized downtown.

I just LOVE this neighborhood!!! A little bit high end. Streets are clean. The residents take great care of their home & business. Love seeing those beautiful flower planters outside the buildings. It is just nice to take a walk in this neighborhood.

Society Hill really isn’t a hill any longer if it ever was. But the townhouses are wonderfully kept in mint condition. It is unimaginable that a structure built in 1778 still survives yet there they are. I would love to have gone inside one to...More

It is located right near Independence Hall. The tree lined streets are lovely and historical homes are beautiful. Many of the homes have historical placards. The building all have character. You will have a good time just wander around this area.
