    The Delaware River comprises to some extent the border between Pennsylvania and New York, between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and for a few miles, the border between New Jersey and Delaware.

    The total length of the Delaware is about 405 miles (650 km)..

    Entrance to Penn's Landing

    Penn's Landing was named after William Penn, Philadelphia's founder, and supposedly the site where he first docked here in 1682. However, the actual site was was somewhere else, now Penn St & 2nd in Chester.

    You can talk walks along the Delaware River or join in one of many recreational activities available in the waterfront.

    Old boat at Penn's Landing

    The Philadelphia Waterfront (also known as Penns Landing), offers many exciting activities for individuals, couples, and families. Take your family for a walk along the river, go out for a romantic dinner for two, or just browse the shops and museums.

  • Penn's Landing is a brick...

    by lilih Written Aug 24, 2002

    Penn's Landing is a brick walkway along the Delaware River.
    There is a Navy destroyer and a submarine, both of which you can tour, and a maritime museum. It's a really nice place to walk on a spring afternoon. See it soon, because there is a ton of new development planned that will probably destroy it.

    Penn's Landing sits on the Delaware River and displays many sculptures, spanning from the religious to the military.

    The site marks the spot where William Penn landed in 1682.
