Up-and-coming for a couple of decades now, Northern Liberties is a serious economic and cultural hub in Philadelphia.  Colloquially known as “NoLibs”, this hip area (AKA one packed full of cool amenities) is home to loads of shops, eateries, galleries, green space and more.

Our block-long tour begins at 419 Brown Street, an adorable home that will provide respite from your life as a social butterfly in Northern Liberties.  Travel 500 feet to the east and you can grab a bite of Southern American food at the legendary brunch spot Honey’s Sit ‘n’ Eat, pick up some greenery at City Planter, get breakfast with friends at the highly-rated Café La Maude and enjoy a bit of artistry at Masthead Print Studio.

Head 1000 feet south and you’ll find yourself in downward-dog at Sankhya Yoga, stuffing yourself with pasta at Popolino (try the Turista Menu!), and ogling the knick knacks at The Random Tea Room & Curiosity Shop.   To the southwest, travel 1000 feet and feast on the best Latin American food outside of, well, Latin America, at Pura Vida.

You’ve visited all of these great locales and yet you’ve only traveled one city block!  You didn’t have to remember where you last parked your car, locate it, and drive around to fight for another parking spot.  You didn’t even have to power-walk city-style – you simply strolled.  What could be better?
