The Pennsylvania Convention Center is located in the heart of Center City, part of the historically certified Reading Terminal Train Shed and Head House. The Reading Terminal Market, which houses more than 80 specialty food merchants and craftspeople, serves as a landmark adjacent to the convention center. Built in 1893, the market serves more than 10,000 people each day and offers meeting attendees an enticing visual and culinary attraction.
Theatres and performance venues abound in Philadelphia, especially on the Avenue of the Arts—the city’s premiere arts district. The Academy of Music, the Rodin Museum, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are only a few of the many cultural attractions that abound in the Center City neighborhood.
