Dockside Provides One of Philadelphia’s Best Locations for Summer Fun

Dockside_SummertimeSummer is one of the best seasons to be in Philadelphia! All around the city, neighborhoods are hosting festivals, parks are green and filled with people, and the Delaware River is buzzing with activity.

Living in Philly is the ideal way to experience all that the city has to offer – and nobody has better front-row seats to all the activity and adventure than those who live here at Dockside! Our residents enjoy an intimate, private enclave that is quietly set apart on the Delaware River, yet remarkably close to the best that Philadelphia has to offer.


Just steps from The Residences at Dockside, Penn’s Landing and the Delaware River waterfront beckon, offering everything from summer concerts and multi-cultural festivals to free outdoor movies under the stars. Paddle Penn’s Landing offers single kayaks, tandems, and even swan-shaped pedal boats for rent. Free yoga classes are offered every day at Race Street Pier. Dockside residents can enjoy riding on the bike path or running along the river, having waterfront picnics, and much more, including the popular new Spruce Street Harbor Park. The riverfront is also scattered with an array of boating clubs, yacht rentals, and cruise companies – perfect for a beautiful day on the water.

Dockside also provides homeowners with easy access to popular attractions like the Sugarhouse Casino, Delaware River Trail, Seaport Museum, Adventure Aquarium, and Susquehanna Bank Center. In addition, residents can take a short walk over the South Street Bridge for plenty of great shopping, dining, and city nightlife, as well as parks and museums. For added convenience, a free shuttle bus runs daily from our building to Center City, making trips into the city even easier and alleviating concerns over parking. The shuttle has a number of stops conveniently located along Walnut and Market Streets. And our close proximity to major thoroughfares, including I-95, I-76 and 676, makes it easy for residents to travel to the Jersey shore or anywhere throughout the tri-state area.
