This grand boulevard, named after Philadelphia’s most famous citizen, is Philadelphia’s early 20th century contribution to the City Beautiful Movement and connects the downtown to Fairmount Park, fulfilling William Penn’s vision of a “greene countrie towne.”

View the grand neoclassical structures that house this city’s cultural, educational and commercial institutions and view the renowned Barnes Foundation on Philadelphia’s version of the Champs Elysees. Meet in Love Park directly across 16th Street from the Suburban Station entrance, beside the Visitor Center (map).
