    Fill your day with both food for thought and some delicious food for your belly on this Philadelphia walking tour! Sprawling University City is known as a vibrant, energetic part of Philadelphia, home to the campuses of not one but TWO of Philly’s prestigious universities, inviting a host of eclectic businesses, restaurants, and food trucks that cater to the mix of students and faculty that populate the area.

    • See 30th Street Station, the largest transit hub in Philly and one of the most important in the U.S.
    • Experience the vibrant neighborhood of University City
    • Explore the campuses of Drexel University, founded in 1891, and the University of Pennsylvania, arguably one of the most picturesque urban campuses in the nation
    • Sample the offerings of a variety of local food trucks found throughout the area

    Your tour starts on the outskirts of the district at Philadelphia’s largest transportation hub, 30th Street Station. Here you’ll have the chance to view the grand architecture so iconic of 1920s construction. After learning a bit about the station and its place both in Philly’s history and today, you’ll head off towards the universities, stopping along the way to sample the first of University City’s many food truck enclaves. There are several tucked away throughout and you’ll be visiting them all! With your appetite whetted, you’ll make your way along historical urban streets to the Drexel University campus to view the architecture and hear all about Drexel’s century long life in the heart of Philadelphia.

    Not to be forgotten, you’ll next head over to Penn Park, a 24-acre commons on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania featuring two athletic fields, a multipurpose stadium, tennis center, and beautiful picnic areas with spectacular views of the Philly skyline. It also features the second clutch of food trucks with a wide array of yummy bites to choose from. Then it’s off to explore the campus itself, known as one of the most beautiful city campuses in the nation thanks to the efforts of architect Frank Furness.

    University City is a fabulous part of Philly not to be missed and what better way to really immerse yourself in the neighborhood than through sight AND taste? Join this Philadelphia walking tour today!
