Philadelphia offers a unique setting for an eclectic mix of modern lifestyles, mingling both the edgy and the sophisticated. History and art are pervasive in the city proper. Walking through downtown, you'll likely spot murals and mosaics coating the sides of industrial warehouses and ivy climbing the walls of 300-year-old brick buildings. Culture is well-established in Philly, too, as evidenced by the array of art galleries, music venues and theaters, as well as the nation's oldest art museum.
Every section of Philly is distinct. Young professionals cluster in trendy neighborhoods like Fishtown and Old City, where dozens of restaurants and bars provide opportunities to socialize. Areas like Fairmount and Chestnut Hill cater to the more affluent city dwellers with boutique shops and upscale townhomes. Families tend to leave the center city area in favor of the quality schools and larger home options of areas like Manayunk, East Falls and Roxborough.
