A Ziptrip to Mt. Airy

A welcoming community that melds sophisticated sensibilities with a laid-back lifestyle

The name says it all. Perched along the banks of the Wissahickon Creek and enveloped by 1,600 acres of parkland and 57 miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails, Mt. Airy is the city’s country refuge. One of the nation’s first integrated communities, it wears its quasi-hippie reputation with pride, welcoming people of every gender, race and nationality. From beautiful historic homes and a bustling business district to tree-lined streets and the scenic trails of the great Wissahickon, Mt. Airy is Philadelphia’s village in the city.
