A popular vacation spot in the pre-revolutionary era, Chestnut Hill has preserved its colonial charm and small-town feel in the Northwestern corner of Philadelphia. A train ride away from Center City, Chestnut Hill is home to locally-owned boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. The nostalgic Trolley Car Diner recalls the days of Chestnut Hill's trolley service, and is a favorite local spot for dinner and ice cream. Stroll through Chestnut Hill to spot historic sites like Graver's Lane Station, Wissahickon Inn, and Ingleswood Cottage.
