The apartment sleeps 4 (2 on Queen Bed with memory foam mattress and 2 on pull-out sofa) and has a private patio with backyard to relax in. Location is close to all attractions, and available for a single, couple, small family or groups. We're just 3 beautiful blocks from lively South Street and easy access to major expressways.

Convention center 20-25 min walk (bus stop nearby, taxi also easy to get). 5 minute walk from historic Colonial area (Society Hill). Convenient city bus stops provide access to all parts of the city although one can walk everywhere in Center City. Pay parking lots all close-by with 2-3 hour free street parking available during the day and night.

South Street is packed with interesting shops of all varieties, places to grab a fast bite or a fine meal. The neighborhood has numerous restaurants (over 100 within walking distance and 7 within one block). The famous Italian Market is on 9th Street.

Generally you can walk everywhere.

If you like to ride; the #12, 17, 33, and 57 bus lines are nearby and go throughout the city. Service is frequent especially around rush hour. Its a fast way to get to Market Street, where you can connect with the Market Street subway or bus lines. Taxis are another way to get around easily - they will come to the house if called or you can hail one on the street.
