It's Here: Grab Your Credit Card and Head Over to Philadelphia's New Fashion District

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and is widely known for its rich history. It is typically known for its many tourist attractions like Independence Hall (where the US Constitution was signed), Liberty Bell, Reading Terminal Market, and Philadelphia Museum of Art whose steps are famously shown in the movie Rocky. Aside from its popular attractions and the historical value the city holds, Philadelphia is also known to be in the top 10 largest cities in the East Coast by population in 2018. With everything going on, you can be sure the luxury hotels in Philadelphia, shopping, dining, and entertainment services are all top-notch, too.

Fashion District Philadelphia
The Fashion District in Philadelphia is a reinvented and revitalized mall that has recently reopened this September. Its official address is located at 901 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107. For many who are familiar with the area, it is the former site of The Gallery at Market East. Fashion District's grand opening will be held on September 19th of 2019. During the grand opening, locals and out-of-towners alike will be able to enjoy 800,000 square feet (about 3 city blocks) of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Fashion District aims to be the "best destination" that includes "art and cultural exhibits." 

Fashionistas can purchase items from H&M, Forever 21, Burlington, Ulta, and many other retailers. For those who come hungry, Fashion District has you covered. Pei Wei, Freshii, BurgerFi, Chickie's & Pete's, and many other well-known eateries will get you full. For snacks and dessert, Auntie Anne's, Dunkin' Donuts, and Big Gay Ice Cream are only to mention a few additional mall offerings. After shopping and eating, sit back, relax, and enjoy a movie at AMC or go bowling and play games at Round1. There's plenty to do for everyone in the family at Fashion District. 

So, you're all excited about the opening and want to make a whole weekend of it. Or perhaps you've decided to go on a much-needed staycation and planned a fun run through Philly’s many museums, shops, and restaurants while staying at an equally luxurious hotel. One of the first hotels to come to mind is The Bellevue Hotel on Broad Street. With historic architecture and Gilded Age sophistication to match, it’s a landmark in its own right. It is accessible to all the nearby attractions like Liberty Bell, Reading Terminal Market, and other museums using MFL or SEPTA routes. Thomas Bond House is another chichi option. As a historic bed and breakfast originally built in 1769, it brings a great tradition of service to all guests.

Getting Around
If you aren't renting a car or taking a cab, then I bet you'll find it convenient riding the routes on SEPTA (The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) or the MFL (Market-Frankford Line) once you're in the area. The Fashion District is conveniently connected to Reading Terminal Market, the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and three transit hubs, including Jefferson Station. If you are coming from New Jersey, you can ride the Patco High-Speed Rail there (entrance on 8th & Market St.).

So, you know where to stay, how to get there, and what to do when you go to the Fashion District grand opening. Remember, save the date and prepare yourself for a spectacular experience at the Fashion District.
