    One of five original open-space parks planned by William Penn, this one is named after 18th-Century astronomer David Rittenhouse. It's now one of the most expensive areas to live in the city.

    The best people watching in the city. This place always feels so welcoming and cozy, filled with all kinds of people. Bring a book, some food, or just yourself. You can always find a seat.

    One of the five original open-space parks in the city. Grab a bench and people-watch in this bustling square, then head to one of the surrounding sidewalk cafes for lunch.

    Originally called Southwest Square, Rittenhouse Square was renamed in 1825 after David Rittenhouse, a clockmaker and friend of the US Revolution, as well as an astronomer.

    Sometimes, late at night, you can see David Rittenhouse arguing with William Penn about placement of benches throughout the park. Nah, just joshin' ya.

    Walnut Street near Rittenhouse Square is a Philly Fashionista's stomping ground. Take a stroll through the park and hit your favorite boutiques and restaurants along the way.

    Perfect for people watching and summer wedding photos. The local church plays bells on the hour. Stop by the cafes nearby and sit on the patio.

    Be alert of the big rittenhouse bush rats!! They'll catch ya by surprise during warmer seasons. Btw bring a blanket, the ground is always moist for some odd reason, unless you enjoy muddy grass stains

    Still awesome after all these years. Love the Farmer's market. Free wi-fi would be awesome. Affordable paid wi-fi would be a cost effective earned income stream for you (hint, hint).
