Mostly inaccessible due to a massive construction project to remake and revitalize the location. Currently, there isn’t much to see or do. On the other side of the Hilton Penn’s Landing, there is a really fun family friendly park, Spruce Street Harbor Park…. which is definitely worth your time. Two stars because of the current construction and inaccessibility. Once finished, I’m sure it’ll be an amazing destination.

We walked out to the waterfront on a very windy day. It was chilly so we did not linger long. Appears it is a nice place for runners and walkers and resting when the weather is alittle warmer

Great waterfront area with walkways, a ferris wheel, a large terraced area for seating overlooking the river, and when we were there, an ice rink. We saw both the 6PM and midnight NYE fireworks, which were both great!

We recently stayed at a hotel nearby and visited the Penn’s Landing attractions which include a roller skating rink and two crazy golf courses, apparently there is an ice skating rink here in the winter with outdoor summer concerts at the great plaza and festival pier. The leisure area has a buzzy atmosphere attracting visitors and many families to it's length of parks with multiple food and drinks outlets along the side of the Delaware River. There are restrooms on site which is accessible via public transport.

I frequent Hilton hotels and it would have been nice except the bathroom was not clean. The shower head had dirt on it like I never seen before. The sink, tub, or floor were not clean in the room. The toiletries were not replaced. They were used. My son was also disappointed that the TV didn't work. Due to the rain we didn't get to enjoy the scenery as much. The desk man did make it up to me by changing my room and comping my parking. Other than that it was nice. The restaurant was nice as well. There was a young server that was really nice and helpful. The guy at the bar needs to be more aware of touching his nose and handling requests for customers because COVID is still out here.

We took our young grandsons there and they really enjoyed it. You can visit the museum, visit a WWII submarine or a WWI Navy Cruiser. There are also Hammacs to relax on when you need a break.

Great waterfront area by the Delaware River to walk and explore - plenty of shops, food stands, and a lively atmosphere especially during the summer months.

Stayed at a nearby hotel and went to all the fun at Penn's Landing. My kids loved the rides, they were semi reasonably priced. Except the roller skating, we paid $30 for 2 kids to skate and get skate rentals. There were a lot of food options as well as alcohol for the adults. It was clean, did not use the bathrooms there, not sure how those were.

Penn’s Landing can be a relaxing place in which to read and people watch. Also, depending upon the day or night (especially weekends), it can be filled with music and shoulder to shoulder people. Upon a recent visit it was also filled with the skunk like stench of openly smoked marijuana as well as drunken patrons of a club - one of whom puked all over my daughter’s foot. So if you enjoy only quiet times, I would suggest visiting during daytime only.
