We stayed at the hotel in the Navy Yard but took a ride to see what else this area had to offer. It's commercialized but not many restaurants or convenience items offered. In the evening you do need to speak with a guard to enter...More

The Philadelphia Navy Yard is very interesting. No longer a 'secure' location with an active Navy, it has lots to see. It is home to Urban Outfitters, looks like a great place for 'artsy' young workers to have a great career. The lunch places in...More
