During the summer months, the Spruce Street Harbor Park is an awesome place to have a drink while lounging in a hammock. Relax under the colorfully lit trees in the park by the water. There are some decent choices for quick bites as well.

If you just like to relax with a drink in the right and a hotdog in your left hand, Spruce Street Harbor Park is for you. Several bars on the piers by the river invite you to enjoy drinks right by the water. You can also visit the adjacent marina anchoring the historic submarine or the warship…

Market
“Reading Terminal Market is an enclosed public market located at 12th and Arch Streets in Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It opened originally in 1893 under the elevated train shed of the Reading Railroad Company after the city of Philadelphia advocated to move public markets from the streets into indoor facilities for both safety and sanitary reasons. The Reading Railroad Company owned and operated the market space until 1976 when the company liquidated, leaving the market without its parent company and foot traffic from the train. Presently, it still occupies the ground floor and basement levels of the Reading Terminal's former train shed which is now part of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Vendor stalls occupy the ground floor with entrances on Filbert Street to the South, Twelfth Street to the West, and Arch Street to the North. The stalls are arranged in a grid pattern with an open area in the center with tables and seating. Over one hundred merchants offer fresh produce, meats, fish, artisan cheese, groceries, ice cream, flowers, grilled cheese, baked goods, crafts, books, clothing, and specialty and ethnic foods.[1] Two of the vendors are descendants of original merchants from the initial opening in the late 1800s.[2] The basement floor of the market holds the state-of-the-art refrigerated storage area for vendor use. Currently, the market is open every day of the week, although the Pennsylvania Dutch merchants (a small but significant minority) generally do not operate Sunday through Tuesday.”
