Walnut and Spruce Hill are easygoing, neighborly districts west of University City where most people get around by bike or foot. Check out the 4400 block of Spruce Street for tasty bites like Honest Tom's tacos, Tampopo Ramen and community hub Local 44 bar. Nearby Clark Park hosts a popular farmer's market on Saturday mornings as well as Shakespeare in the evenings during Summer. Pop into the Green Line Cafe for an organic, fair trade coffee before you hop on the Green Line trolley.
