Philadelphia Travel Guide

Manayunk, Germantown, and Chestnut Hill

Chestnut Hill and Mount Airy are very pleasant, predominantly residential neighborhoods. Travel to downtown Philadelphia is easy by car or train. Restaurants and shops run all along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill. Mount Airy is a little more sprawling, but there are a number of good restaurants and bars there as well. Manayunk has little of its history on display, unless you follow
