Live and breathe the Philadelphia freedom when taking up residence in a Greystar apartment for rent. When planting roots in the City of Brotherly Love, you’ll surely become captivated with the endless possibilities to dine, shop, entertain or simply relax in style.

So when freedom rings – or knocks on your door at The Granary, Tower Place, Bridgeview, Lincoln Green, The Commonwealth or Londonbury at Millennium – you’ll definitely want to answer and take advantage of the many opportunities that await you in the birthplace of America.

Philadelphia is well-known for being the home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, but what makes the city even more delicious are the popular steak and cheese sandwiches that leave mouths watering. Setting off on an adventure to find the best Philly cheesesteak in the city could be frustrating or fun – depending on how hungry you are. That’s why there’s Geno’s Steaks, Steve’s Prince of Steaks and Wit or Witout around our Philadelphia apartment communities.

Once you’ve had your fill of cheesesteaks, enjoy the freedom to try other cuisines at sit-down restaurants or trendy food trucks all around the city. Whether seeking Cuban comfort food at Rosa Blanca, a hearty steak from Butcher & Singer, Mexican at El Vez, Italian at Lo Spiedo or a slice of pizza at Pizzeria Vetri, there are plenty of eateries around our Philadelphia apartments that will not only tempt your taste buds but assuredly wow any visitors you are hosting.  

Another thing that will impress your family and friends is the fact that clothing and shoes are tax-free in Philadelphia – and everywhere in Pennsylvania, for that matter. So be sure to stock up your wardrobe at the many independent boutiques and plentiful national retailers available in shopping centers and malls around the region.

If a day or night on the town calls for a brew or two to celebrate a milestone or simply catch up with an old friend, several breweries craft tasty ales and lagers that will have you coming back for more. Yards Brewing Company and Philadelphia Brewing Co. encourage Philadelphia apartment residents who are 21 and over to find out what’s on tap.

Sports fans will be in heaven with the abundance of teams that call Philadelphia home. Whether you’re a baseball, football, basketball, hockey, lacrosse or soccer enthusiast, you might want to change your allegiances and cheer on MLB’s Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, the NHL’s Philadelphia Fliers, NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and National Lacrosse League’s Philadelphia Wings at Wells Fargo Center and the Liberty Football Club’s Philadelphia Liberty soccer team at John A. Farrell Stadium.

The Wells Fargo complex also boasts XFinity Live! which hosts concerts and movies while housing a number of restaurants and bars. Right across the Delaware River, Susquehanna Bank Center and Adventure Aquarium draw huge crowds for their concerts and sea life, respectively.

If you’re passionate about history, you’ll find tons of stuff to do in Philadelphia. The Constitution Center, the Betsy Ross house and Benjamin Franklin’s grave are just a few of the many attractions that will ring your bell. A ghost tour of Philadelphia promises to unlock the mysterious tales of America’s most haunted city with strolls through Independence Park, Society Hill and Old City.

When it comes to museums, Greystar apartment residents can spend endless days visiting and re-visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art, National Constitution Center Museum, Please Touch Museum, National Museum of American Jewish History, The Franklin Institute, Rodin Museum and Independence Seaport Museum. For a touch of nostalgia – and a little exercise – movie lovers can climb the famous stairs that Rocky Balboa did in the original “Rocky” film.
