Fairmount is home to renowned museums along Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Inspired by the Champs-Élysées, the boulevard attracts plenty of foot traffic to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Families enjoy the Philadelphia Zoo and tours of the spooky Eastern State Penitentiary museum, while young crowds fill Fairmount Avenue’s cafes and bistros. At night, lights from Boathouse Row create a spectacular view.
Often referred to as the “Art Museum Area” because of its walking-distance access to Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin Museum and Barnes Foundation, Fairmount possesses a distinct personality that thrives independent of those many hallowed halls.
Just outside the hustle and bustle, young families who move here enjoy its proximity to beautiful green spaces and a thriving food scene.
