There aren’t many neighborhoods in Philadelphia as charming and historic as Fairmount and Spring Garden. Home to a wide range of museums, fine art, Victorian-style architecture, and a diverse residential community, Fairmount and Spring Garden bring glory to the Philly area.
Fairmount, also known as the ‘Art Museum Area,’ is bounded to the north of Fairmount Avenue, the west of Corinthian Avenue, the south of Girard Avenue, and the east of the Schuylkill River. It’s within walking distance to what many know as the historic and beautiful Museum Row.
Spring Garden is a small, yet charming neighborhood wedged between Fairmount and Center City — the bustling heart of Philadelphia. It’s bounded by Spring Garden Street to the south, Pennsylvania Avenue to the west, Fairmount Avenue to the north, and Broad Street to the east.
If you’re looking for things to do in the Spring Garden and Fairmount area, you can visit Museum Row, which consists of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin Museum and Barnes Foundation, or the Eastern State Penitentiary, which closed its doors back in 1971.
