Bordered on the west by the Schuylkill River and to the north by Interstate 676, the Middle City West neighborhood of Philadelphia offers a number of cultural and natural attractions for apartment residents to enjoy.

The river itself offers a unique look at Philadelphia history through the Schuylkill River Trail and Heritage Area. A portion of the 126-mile long trail runs through Middle City West, and apartment residents can learn of the trail's connection to some of the nation's most important milestones, including General George Washington's encampment at Valley Forge during the American Revolution as well as the river's ties to the Industrial Revolution. The first ten miles of the trail are located in Philadelphia, while portions of it throughout the rest of the state are still under construction.

Apartment residents in Middle City West can also visit the Franklin Institute, founded in 1824 and named after founding father Benjamin Franklin. According to institute officials, the museum offers a wealth of internationally-recognized exhibitions and programs that are dedicated to furthering the understanding of science and technology.
