Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Fairmount Neighborhood

Fairmount Neighborhood

Philadelphia’s Fairmount section was named for the prominent hill on which the Philadelphia Museum of Art now sits. Just steps from the renowned institutions that line the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the neighborhood is home to charming houses, great restaurants and cafes, laid-back and fun bars, friendly residents and a massive prison-turned-attraction.
