Welcome to Philadelphia Freedom Walk

Philadelphia Freedom Walk a Success

The FreeWalkers completed our first scenic 20-mile walk around Philadelphia on Saturday, July 12, 2014. The walk began and ended at 30th Street Station. Several FreeWalkers took advantage of an alternative shorter 10-mile walk which covered much of the main areas in town. About 30 FreeWalkers took advantage of the fine summer weather and gracious hospitality of a fine city.

The walk starts by following the Skuykill River Trail and connects with the East Coast Greenway and passes a number of notable historical places as it winds through the city. We explore several neighborhoods and parks and pass many historic and cultural landmarks including: Fairmount Park, Philadelphia Art Museum, Boathouse Row, City Hall, South Street, Penn's Landing, Reading Terminal Market, Chinatown, Independence Mall, Elfreth's Alley, Eastern State Penitentiary, Society Hill, Independence Seaport Museum and more.
