The Manayunk neighborhood is a great place to spend the day, with its charming Main Street shops, restaurants and bars. Often overlooked by visitors is the scenic towpath along the canal, a great place for a leisurely walk or bike ride. The adventurous can bike to Manayunk from the Art Museum via the Kelly Drive recreational path, and the super-adventurous can pass through Manayunk on their bikes on the way to the Schuylkill River Trail and Valley Forge.
Manayunk is host to several fun street festivals during the year and is a great destination in the fall. Consider visiting in September for the Fall StrEAT Food Festival which features over 50 artisan food vendors.
