Dockside Residents Enjoy Premier Location for Philly Summer Fun
Philadelphia, PA, July 2016: Summer 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 at The Residences at Dockside. This popular, gated waterfront community is quietly set apart on the Delaware River, offering residents a nice sense of privacy, while still being remarkably close to all that Philadelphia has to offer.
Steps away from Dockside, Penn’s Landing and the Delaware River beckon, offering everything from summer concerts and multi-cultural festivals to free outdoor movies under the stars. Dockside residents can enjoy riding on the bike path, or strolling or running along the river. Spruce Street Harbor Park is a popular destination, especially with its summer series of live music. BlueCross RiverRink Summerfest provides a variety of fun activities, from skating to mini-golf. Free yoga classes are offered every day at Race Street Pier and for the more adventurous, floating yoga and fitness classes are available on the water. Paddle Penn’s Landing offers kayaks and foot-pedal swan boats for rent. The riverfront is also home to an array of boating clubs, yacht rentals, and cruise companies – perfect for a beautiful day on the water.
The Residences at Dockside also provides homeowners with easy access to nearby 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 The Residences at Dockside 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 the community’s 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.
Closer to home, right in their own building, Dockside residents enjoy some of the finest resort-like amenities in the area. The building features a heated indoor pool and hot tub, a fitness center with cardio and resistance equipment, and a spacious Club Room for entertaining, with a full catering kitchen, pool table, grand piano, large-screen TV and adjacent 4,100-square-foot terrace overlooking the river. Residents also enjoy some of the city’s best views of the river, the Ben Franklin Bridge, and the Philadelphia skyline.
