Attractions near the Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia
Discovering Philadelphia’s vibrant heart
Located in the heart of Philadelphia, Rittenhouse Square is a popular place to relax, take a stroll or have a bite to eat. Get your camera ready to capture images of the reflective pool, classical urns and impressive sculptures such as the Lion Crushing a Serpent by French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye.
You can wander among the lush oaks, maples, locusts and plane trees, stopping off to take in the beauty of the flowerbeds filled with blooming colour. Once only a daytime destination, Rittenhouse Square now has a new personality by night, serving quality meals and drinks at any of the restaurants and bars along its east side.
Taste your way through Reading Market
Established in the late 1800s, Reading Terminal Market is the country’s oldest operating farmers’ market. You can please your palate with a variety of cosmopolitan cuisines, from aromatic Asian and Middle Eastern dishes, to famous Philly cheesesteaks and authentic soul food. Don’t miss a stroll through the section dedicated to Amish merchants for the chance to try one of the freshly made pretzels.
Once you’ve eaten your fill, feel free to spend some time simply wandering though the 80-plus merchant stalls, some of which have origins from the Market’s first days.
