Main Street Manayunk
Charming canal-edged shopping and dining minutes from Center City
Just minutes from Center City, Manayunk is more than a half-mile long, with more than 65 shops and galleries and scores of restaurants.
The heart and soul of the community is Main Street, a mercifully level thoroughfare bustling with dozens of restaurants, owner-operated boutiques, bars and galleries.
Daytime activities give way to nighttime action as foodies and revelers hit the streets, scoping out new menu additions at restaurants, jockeying for views at the riverside clubs, catching up-and-coming local musicians or dancing to a DJ.
Those in need of retail therapy can rejoice in Manayunk. Within a few blocks, a shopper can score a runway design at Nicole Miller and get gorgeous with imported high-end products from Beans Beauty.
Shoppers can order furniture at Pompanoosuc Mills or, in a nod to Manayunk’s manufacturing past, make their own at Philadelphia Woodworks, a center where aspiring craftspeople and master woodworkers can take classes, use tools and equipment.
And cyclists of all levels can find just the right equipment at Cadence Cycling and Human Zoom Bikes and Boards.
As a popular spot for chefs to spread their culinary wings and with at least 50 dining spots, almost every craving can be satisfied.
