Welcome to Philadelphia Freedom Walk

Welcome to the Philadelphia Freedom Walk

The FreeWalkers are planning our 2nd annual scenic walk around Philadelphia on Saturday, July 11, 2015. This is a 20-mile walk that begins and ends at 30th Street Station. We've also mapped out a 10-mile version for those that would prefer more time sightseeing and less time walking. Last year 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.

New for 2015:

We'll walk the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk, a breathtaking, 2,000-foot-long pathway that extends the Schuylkill River Trail from Locust to South Street. The scenic path allows pedestrians, runners and bicyclists to literally walk over river to some of the best skyline views around. More on the Boardwalk...
