A Beautiful Sight: Bella Vista Steals the Spotlight

Strolling around 6th Street,11th Street, South Street, and Washington Avenue, you can find yourself completely immersed in a section of Philadelphia unlike any other.  Bella Vista, the very first neighborhood to be settled by Italian immigrants has boldly evolved into a section of the city that both holds true to its culture, while still welcoming many others.

Italian for “beautiful sight,” Bella Vista has genuinely upheld this title by unequivocally blending warm charm with stunning sophistication. But it is without a doubt that over the decades, it’s brought together not only a diverse blend of folk, businesses, and parks, but also played an active role in providing an eclectic, yet harmonizing energy for its residents with year round events and scenery.

From the Italian Market Festival to the everyday experiences that can be found and made in this neighborhood, this zip code proudly provides for natives and visitors.
