Local Attractions

While we encourage alumni and their guests to take advantage of the full schedule of events we offer from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday morning, below is a list of attractions around the city for those interested in exploring Philadelphia during their visit. 

We realize various schools are on spring break during this period of time, presenting a scheduling challenge for some.  For those visiting with children for all or a portion of this time: future Penn Law lawyers visiting Philly can soak up our nation’s history and enjoy the sights and sounds of the City of Brotherly Love!  Several of the below venues are kid-friendly - please view the links for more information.
