"Shady walk, great for people watching"

Locust walk cuts right through the heart of the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. It is lined with large trees and bench or tables, along with a number of older buildings belonging to the university. During the day, it is bustling with people going about their business, students going to classes, people handing out fliers, and students mingling with professors over coffee. It is a great place to take a short break and sit on a bench under a shady tree and people watch.

"Get a Feel for the Ivy League"

I always have had a fondness for college campuses. Philadelphia just happens to be home to the University of Pennsylvania. You can get real feel for the Ivy League by taking a short stroll down the Locust Walk. Locust St. between 39th anf 40th. It central location and historic feel gives me a real feel for the University. Just a note many of the areas around the University are in transition. Please be aware of your surroundings and use your common sense.
