You can take a walk, try to get a hammock and eat some crab fries among other things. It's a very fun place and it's so close to many other places like Penn's Landing.

I wish they stayed open until Nov 1. Nice summer hangout with food stands, food trucks, and a beer garden. Nice chairs to people watch or look onto the water. They also have hammocks if you dare.

This beautiful structure is Located right next to Penns landing. It's Philly's Harbor next to the Delaware river. In the summer they feature hammocks that you can lounge in and a number of places to eat and drink.
