For a breath of fresh air, make the short trip from Meetinghouse and relax in Rittenhouse Square Park. Sitting in the center of the charming neighborhood bearing the same name, this park is one of the great fixtures of Center City Philadelphia. Born from the mind of Benjamin Franklin, it has lived up to the founding father's dream, filled with trees and blooming flowers, statues, and a fountain.

Enjoy the cooler fall temperatures by bringing a blanket and picnic lunch to share with friends. Then, take a stroll around the paths, or bring a Frisbee. When you're done, visit any of the chic restaurants and shops lining the park. Rittenhouse Square Park also offers many outdoor events. Throughout the year, you'll find everything from movie screenings to farmers markets to arts and crafts shows. Make sure to return in a few months during the holiday season, when the park is simply yet elegantly decorated with lights.
