Sitting on the banks of the Delaware River in the Center City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Penn's Landing is one of the biggest outdoor attractions for visitors and locals when visiting the City of Brotherly Love. Every summer, Penn's Landing is packed with visitors enjoying the sunshine on the river and any number of family-friendly activities that take place daily at this incredible venue. One of Penn's Landing's most impressive venues is Festival Pier, one of the city's top concert venues, especially during the warmer months. The Delaware River Waterfront's main concert venue hosts some of the hottest names in music and you won't want to miss the opportunity to see a show at one of the country's best outdoor venues. Named after Philadelphia's founder William Penn, Penn's Landing was the dream of the founders, who wanted the riverfront area to be a tree-lined park to be enjoyed by all the citizens of Philadelphia. It took over three centuries, but by the 1960's the park became a reality and the city got its much deserved riverfront park, filled with museums, restaurants, memorials, hotels and docked ships that bring thousands of visitors to the banks of the Delaware River every year.
