Both luxury apartments and charming condos are available for rent in this bustling city.

  • Restaurants

    Philadelphia is about more than just cheesesteaks and pretzels. The city is also home to a number of high quality chefs and restaurateurs. Iron Chef Jose Garces has opened a number of restaurants throughout the city, including tapas restaurant Amada in Old City, upscale Mexican restaurant Distrito by the University of Pennsylvania and Volver on the Avenue of the Arts.

    If you're a vegetarian, you're in luck in Philadelphia. The town is home to Vedge, a vegan restaurant that focuses on preparing vegetables in innovative ways. If you're looking for more casual vegetarian fare, you can head to Hip City Veg, a completely vegan fast food spot.

    Of course, there are times when all you want is a cheesesteak. If you choose to live in Passyunk Square, famed rival cheesesteak joints Pat's and Geno's are just steps away. Some people swear by Jim's Steaks, over on South street, while others claim that Dalessandro’s, up in Roxborough, makes the best steak.

  • Transportation

    Many apartments in Philadelphia are within walking distance to the things you need for everyday life, from restaurants to grocery stores and from banks to movie theaters. But, the city also has a number of transit options for those times when you don't want to walk or drive. When you're renting an apartment in Philadelphia, it pays to get to know SEPTA, the city's transit system.

    SEPTA operates the buses that travel across the city and into the suburbs. It also oversees the city's two subway lines, the Broad Street Line and the Market-Frankford Line. For those times when you have to ride to the suburbs, the regional rail line will take you there in comfort. Philly is also teeming with taxis.
