Best of Philly

2017 Overlooked Tourist Attraction

The Navy Yard

The main reason people go to this neighborhood-in-a-neighborhood these days is because they work there. But before Urban arrived, for the better part of 200 years, the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, as it was known, was an essential part of the U.S. military. Appreciate how well it’s cleaned up and learn something new on the (actually interesting) self-guided tour.
