Rittenhouse Row is home to some of Philly’s most luxurious shopping destinations, but right in the center is a green refuge known as
(1) Rittenhouse Square Park. Take a break from shopping and enjoy a tranquil picnic on the well-manicured grass after picking up lunch from nearby Di Bruno Brothers. Sitting pretty in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, (2) Morris Arboretum is a public garden and historic site wrapped into one. In addition to the 92-acres of flowers, trees and plants, the Arboretum also offers classes, tours and lectures for plant-lovers. Snap the perfect picture of the Ben Franklin Bridge from (3) Race Street Pier, a waterfront spot at the banks of the city. On any given day, you’ll find runners, sunbathers, passing duck boats and an overall feeling of calmness.
