About these ratings

While it was once a grazing area for livestock, Rittenhouse Square is now one of the swankiest areas in the city. Named for David Rittenhouse, the first director of the United States Mint, this neighborhood -- several blocks southeast of the Mütter Museum -- now features plenty of top-notch restaurants, elegant stores and a host of trendy nightlife venues. The park itself is a great place for a picnic or an outdoor stroll.

You can reach Rittenhouse Square via the City Hall and Walnut Locust metro stops. The park is located Walnut Street between N 18th and N 19th Streets.
