Rittenhouse Square

Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square was originally created as a grazing pasture for farm animals, but is now one of the city’s wealthiest areas to reside in.

The area is named after David Rittenhouse, the first director of the United States Mint and features some of the best restaurants, stores, and nightlife around. The nearby park also makes for the perfect picnic date venue and allows for gorgeous outdoor strolls.

With the winter weather slowly creeping up, the best time to visit Rittenhouse Square is now.

It can be reach via the City Hall and Walnut Locust metro stops. Otherwise Rittenhouse Square is located on Walnut Street between N 18th and N 19th Streets.
