Out and About: University City Style

As you know, I like to post about the happenings going on all throughout the city. However, this time, I'm going to keep it a little more intimate. I want to talk to you about what is only blocks away and surrounds our home away from home. Let's talk about what's going on in University City. University City is the easternmost part of West Philadelphia (isn't that a funny way to describe it?). The University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and ourselves call University City home. That means, everywhere you go, I can almost guarantee that you'll be surrounded by college students. And what that means is that you can safely assume that this area is packed with activities to do all throughout the school semester and even in the summer, and that's what I love about it! 

So, let us take a look at the University City District website. I like to head into the "Having Fun" section where you can find an assortment of activities going on in the district. This includes the University City Dining Days, where you can eat at five start restaurants for half of price, Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, where cafes and vendors come out and price everything at a dollar, and let's not forget about Events at the Porch, which is located right by 30th Street Station and where they hold free mini golf, fitness classes, and even a beer garden (for those of you of age). I didn't even hit half of the events that go on throughout University City, but don't let that stop you from visiting the site! So what are you waiting for?!
