A Ziptrip to Manayunk

Shopping, dining, and scenic views along the Schuylkill River

Say Manayunk and three words come to mind. Very. Steep. Hills. What was once one of the city’s hottest industrial centers is now not only one of its hottest neighborhoods, but also an international destination for cyclists who want the challenge of 17% inclines that make the annual Philly Cycling Classic one of the best bike races in the world. Nestled along the banks of the Schuylkill River and the Manayunk Canal and Tow Path, the commercial district is lined with renovated Victorian storefronts and mill buildings giving you an urban experience with small town charm.
