The beginning of your tour takes you through Historic Old City and down to Penn’s Landing, with views over to New Jersey and out to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Continue along the Delaware River past historic ships and popular restaurants, and then cross Columbus Boulevard to Headhouse Plaza and head south into the Bella Vista neighborhood. An often overlooked part of town for travelers, you’ll get a peek at the artistic side while passing murals and artistic havens. You then travel up through the iconic Italian Market (very popular with fans of the Rocky movies) before you experience the eclectic South Street – viewing the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and several blocks along this historic street. Your next neighborhood to explore is Society Hill with gorgeous historic homes, the nation’s first hospital (Penn Hospital), and quaint, quiet streets. Finally, head through the Independence Mall area, along Race Street, and back to our location next to the Betsy Ross House.
We make safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you’ll return with a much greater appreciation of the city by the end of your exciting 1-Hour Segway PT Tour of Philadelphia.
