Locals and Visitors Invited to Explore The Rest of Philly

Visitors often never venture outside of Center City and many locals stick to their own ‘hoods. GPTMC’s new Philadelphia Neighborhoods campaign helps you plot your next adventure and discover the rest of Philadelphia.

The Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Marketing Corporation (GPTMC) has launched a new campaign called Philadelphia Neighborhoods that spotlights 14 fun and culture filled neighborhoods outside Center City. Check out the Philadelphia Neighborhoods section of visitphilly.com to explore neighborhoods’ storied streets, buzzed-about restaurants, emerging art galleries, independent shops, intimate music venues, plentiful parks and annual festivals.  

The neighborhoods included in the project are Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Callowhill, Spring Garden, Fairmount, Queen Village, Bella Vista, Pennsport, East Passyunk, Graduate Hospital, University City, Powelton Village, Spruce Hill and Cedar Park.

With an eye toward driving overnight visitation, GPTMC chose to feature neighborhoods that are a 15-minute walk or ride from Center City hotels. But the extensive information and interactive feature available on the website make it a valuable resource for both locals and visitors.
