It’s no secret that Philadelphia is filled with amazing, hard-working, and dedicated community members who spend their days trying to make Philadelphia a better place for residents and visitors alike. Here, meet some of the city’s most stylish couples, and find out why they're proud to live in Philadelphia.
"We are both fortunate to call Philadelphia home, and together we have always loved the spirit of this city. Whether it is complaining about the potholes that never seem to get fixed, having a love-hate relationship with every sports team, or taking tremendous pride in the fact that both Santa Claus and Beyoncé know not to cross us, we love being Philadelphians. From the moment we met, we have loved to take in all that this city has to offer from taking our dogs on long walks through Valley Green and enjoying pop-up beer gardens in every part of the city (thanks to Parks and Tap), to indulging at one of the best restaurants in the world; we can't imagine living and loving any other city in the world more than we love Philadelphia."
"We love Philadelphia's progressive, inclusive, and vibrant nature. Her rich history, diverse arts and culture, and contemporary wealth—reflected in our major centers of business, education, science, and technology—make Philadelphia one of the greatest cities in the world. Our favorite time together is with our miniature pinscher, Ella, attending the city's endless offerings and exploring its hidden secrets. Our fondest moments of Philadelphia are those formed at home with friends and family celebrating milestones and holidays with the beauty of historic Washington Square as our backdrop."
"We've lived in the city for over two years and can't imagine leaving. We met in college and moved to Philly to start our life together. Philly is amazing because it's a mini New York. We have everything we need right at our fingertips. We love picking up coffee and exploring the different neighborhoods. Philly is so diverse, which makes it an ideal place to live."
"We adore Philadelphia so much that our business, Space & Company, literally helps other people make Philadelphia their home. Working with an amazing team of tastemakers, community leaders, artists, and entrepreneurs means that our nights and weekends are full of options for trying new places or visiting long-held favorites. We love to spend time working and living in different neighborhoods throughout the city, trying new restaurants, shopping, and really absorbing the culture. Since having our daughter, we've added an entirely new experience of family-friendly adventures. We embrace the Renaissance that this city is going through, and we are here to stay!"
"We love the vibrant arts scene in Philadelphia. There are so many choices since the options have expanded and improved over the years, We subscribe to the Kimmel's Broadway series and attend other events there. We attend art gallery openings, museum exhibits, and plays at the many other theaters. As foodies, we also love the variety of fantastic restaurants throughout the city."
"We love living in this city, we walk everywhere. Sundays we usually stroll through the park or down by the river for hours with our French bulldog, Bailey. Chances are you've met Bailey."
