Shopping in Philadelphia

What to Buy Around Rittenhouse Square

Comprising everything from renowned luxury labels to acclaimed local boutiques, shopping in Philadelphia supplies an endless array of choices. Our city was recently recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as the #2 best shopping city in the world, thanks to the diverse array of shops and specialty stores -- many of them in Center City. The scenery of Rittenhouse Square is set against a backdrop of one of the best shopping districts of any US city, with high-end and mid-market shops surrounding the beauty and bustle of the park.

With the majority of small shops, boutiques, outlets and luxury retailers in Philadelphia concentrated along Walnut Street, you can plan on a casual afternoon's worth of browsing through new finds, old favorites, and everything in between. Many stores are housed in stunning, beautifully preserved Art Deco buildings, so your browsing will be even more of a visual experience.
