Make the Most of Summer in the City Around your Victor Apartment

20th May 2021

The sun is shining, the grass is growing and the Phils are back at the stadium—summer in the city is finally almost here! Even if you want to be a bit more cautious and a bit less social this summer, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy all that Philly has to offer in the summer. From thirst-quenching water ice to the area’s best summer apparel shops to mouthwatering margaritas, you can find lots of great ways to cool down, chill out and soak up the sun right near your The Victor apartment.

One way to welcome summer is at Franklin Fountain, an historic ice cream and confectionary shop in the heart of Old City, just 10 minutes from your The Victor apartment. The building is more than a century old and retains much of its historic charm and architecture, making it a perfect fit for its Old City location, amid some of Philadelphia’s oldest and most historic sites.

Franklin Fountain offers a walk-up window, pickup and delivery options, so you can grab your sweet treat and go for a stroll to enjoy a warm spring or summer evening in Philly. The menu features an extensive selection of items to satisfy your sweet tooth and help you celebrate summer. Ice cream is served up in a variety of cones, including the house-made maple waffle cone or the craft chocolate-dipped waffle cone. Flavors include everything from chocolate chip to pistachio to sea salt caramel to green tea to rum raisin. There are also a number of vegan options, including coconut cream and cookies. You can also grab fruit ices, with selections changing daily.

Kick your ice cream up a notch with more than 20 different toppings or opt for one of Franklin Fountain’s nine housemade sundaes. You can even build your own ice cream sandwich, soda or float for a true vintage ice cream shop experience.

This summer, throw on the shades, break out the flip flops and get ready to enjoy the soak in summer fun in the city.
