The Chestnut Hill area of philly feels so separate but is so close and so easy to get around. The rest of Philly is so cut throat for parking, the public transit can be rough (and super expensive from nyc!) and sometimes I get a little burnt out. Chestnut will is technically in Philly but separated by the fair mount park system and probably a 30 minute drive from 30th st. Station. The Chestnut Hill hotel is obviously a hotel but also has event space, a brewing company and a few other restaurants. They also have this cool rock dress art that I love.
