Located in the University City
section of Philadelphia, Powelton Village
sits north of the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. Known for its mid-to-late 19th-century architecture, this neighborhood features Victorian-style houses
for rent with plenty of trees lining the streets, as well as apartments near the colleges.
Visit the Farmers Market for a taste of the local cuisine, or head to Drexel Park for a relaxing walk and stunning view of the city's skylines. After building up your appetite, indulge in a slice at one of the numerous pizzerias, including Powelton Pizza and Ed's Pizza. Shop on Lancaster Avenue during "second Fridays," where the stores stay open late every other Friday and offer sales, while live music plays outside. Enjoy food, art, and music at the 33rd Street Armory at Drexel University.
