Where to Find Outdoor Summer Fun

3rd June 2021

Summer is here, the sun is shining and life in the Philly area is starting to get back to normal—you know what that means? It’s time to get out and about! Summer in the city offers tremendous opportunities for outdoor adventure—from hiking and biking to brewery tours and street festivals. No matter what your interests, take some time this summer to appreciate all that the region has to offer when the weather turns warm.

One of the standouts near your The Victor apartment is Spruce Street Harbor Park. The riverside oasis reopened in May, bringing back many of the Philly favorites that were sidelined last summer because of the pandemic. So, if you haven’t visited Spruce Street Harbor Park yet, this summer is the perfect time to do it.

Spruce Street Harbor Park offers summer activities for visitors of all interests. For those looking to kick back and relax while soaking up some sun, there are hammocks strung throughout the park where you can leisurely lay with a book and a brew. Those looking for some friendly competition can play any of the life-sized board games or compete for prizes at the boardwalk area or in the arcade.

If you’re looking for some of the area’s best dining and drinking options, you’ll also find them at Spruce Street Harbor Park. The park is home to Philly favorites like Chickie’s & Pete’s, a Jose Garces outpost and more, along with boardwalk favorites—from funnel cake and water ice to fried Oreos and cotton candy—that will have you feeling like you’re sunning at the shore and not just 10 minutes from your The Victor apartment. On the drinks side, enjoy a variety of locally made beers, wines and ciders, along with frozen cocktails—which can be enjoyed strolling through the park or even lounging in nets right over the river, a perfect way to while away a summer day.

Summer in Philly offers plenty of ways to chill out, cool off and soak in the fun.
