Resting just beyond Benjamin Franklin Parkway, home to Philly’s truly world-class museums, Fairmount is synonymous with fine art — but it’s far from the only draw of Center City’s effusive northern neighbor.

Often referred to as the “Art Museum Area” due to its walking-distance access to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin and Barnes Foundation, Fairmount possesses a distinct personality that thrives independent of those hallowed halls.

Getting acquainted with Fairmount is now easier than ever, thanks to surrounding neighborhoods on the commercial and residential rise.
