If you and your family have recently decided to move to the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan area, you’ve picked an amazing city to inhabit. Philadelphia’s history is almost as old as this great country, and from her streets, you’ll feel the legacy of over 330 years of growth and development. After all, it’s not called the City of Brotherly Love for nothing!

Even if you’re a native Philadelphian only looking to move neighborhoods, welcome nonetheless! Even as Philadelphia goes, Manayunk is a pretty special place. And if you don’t believe us, maybe you’ll take Business Insider’s word for it. They recently ranked us as the second-best neighborhood in the entire metropolitan area. From the quality of our schools to the restaurants and entertainment, the community of our neighborhood is what makes it the next up-and-coming spot to which your family should move.

We at Manayunk Apartments hope to make this transition a smooth and pleasant one and would like to extend a friendly hand should you need it!

Oh, The Things to Eat in Manayunk

Once you’re settled into one of our one- or two-bedroom luxury apartments, you’ll surely be wondering what there is to do around town. After all, Business Insider doesn’t name a place #2 for no reason. Well, as somewhat of experts on the area, let us tell you what you’re in for. Do you like food? Hopefully so because Manayunk is a food hub! We have over 29 amazing restaurants in just a few city blocks offering food from around the globe. You could spend years sampling the different menu items from all our restaurants.

Once you’ve found your group of people, you can then invite them over for dinner parties and wine tastings. All apartment units at Terrace Lofts and the Flats on Penich feature thoroughly modern kitchens. They come furnished with refrigerators, microwaves, and ovens, all in stainless-steel. You’ll feel like a chef on Chopped as you prepare meals for your friends and they’ll love watching you from the bar seating around your gorgeous quartz countertops. 

Take in the City

Maybe unlike us, you think with more than just your stomach. If that’s the case, not to fret. In Manayunk, it’s easy to get out to the restaurants and take in some of the atmosphere. Philadelphia consistently ranks among some of the prettiest cities in America, and Manayunk is no exception to that standard. When you walk down Main Street, you’ll be reminded of the cities long history as you take in the beauty of Manayunk’s mid-19th century Classical Revival and Late Victorian architectural styles. Despite being located just thirty minutes from the heart of downtown Philadelphia, Manayunk still manages to capture the down-to-earth vibe of a small town without sacrificing its big city appeal.

Once you’re back at your one- or two-bedroom Terrace Loft apartment, that doesn’t mean you have to end your day on the town. From your loft, you can easily step right back out into the atmosphere and get a beautiful bird’s eye view. That’s because all units at the Terrace Lofts came with an outdoor balcony. With a few creative and personal touches, you can make your balcony into a cozy reading corner, a spot to hang out with friends or transform it into a green space.

If you’re planning to rent at the Lofts on Penich, you too can have an outdoor area. Two-bedroom flats all come with either a balcony or an outdoor seating area that’s perfect for bringing friends over for a few drinks in the summer sun.

Escape to the Great Outdoors

Maybe you’re looking to get away from the city. Many people choose Manayunk for its small-town vibe, so it makes sense that you might want to find your way to the great outdoors. Fortunately, Manayunk has plenty of green spaces and is only a short drive from some of the most pristine hiking trails in the state. If you’re only looking for some nature and don’t want to leave town, check out the Manayunk Canal Towpath. Following this trail, you can walk along the Schuylkill River into downtown Philadelphia or to Valley Forge!

If you want something more out of the way, head up to Wissahickon Valley Park for some hiking. In the park, you’ll find over fifty miles of trails that lead to beautiful views, waterfalls, and trickling streams. Whether you’re an urbanite or are looking to get away from it all on the weekends, Manayunk has it all.

Once you get back to town, though, you’ll want to clean up and refresh yourself at home. Back at the Flats on Penich or from your Terrace Loft, you’ll make the most of our top of the line bathrooms. All units feature beautiful and modern Gohre fixtures, and most units also have glass showers with a rain shower head. If you’re a stickler for a warm bathroom, do not worry. Our units are also all fitted with the most modern thermostats from Nest. You’ll be bathing in comfort as if you were at a day spa.
