4 Surefire Plans for the Philly Area’s Best Memorial Day 2016

Posted by Nicholas Cerminara on 05/24/16

Congratulations, Philadelphians! You’ve made it through another cold winter. With Memorial Day in sight, everyone’s favorite time of year is upon us once again.

Once things start to warm up, there are no people happier than those in Philly. Just a quick trip from an array of beaches, plenty to do in the beautiful city, pool parties and barbecues galore featuring that everlasting sunlight to keep you looking like a tan supermodel — it’s truly a great place to be.

Naturally, Memorial Day is taken quite seriously around the Bala-Philadelphia Area. Marking the beginning of summer, it’s one of the most important holidays of the year. Everyone’s got big plans for the day. We hope you do too.

In the rare case that you don’t, here are a few things you can do this weekend around the area of the soon-to-be luxury apartments for rent at The Royal Athena:

Spruce Street Harbor Park



Fact: Everyone in Philadelphia loves Spruce Street Harbor Park. For months now, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the seasonal opening of the one-of-a-kind riverside public space, complete with plenty of beer, games, hammocks, dockside lounges, boat rides and those famous FedNuts Chicken Sandwiches. It’s perfect and from the location of The Royal Athena, you’re only a quick train ride away from the fun.


Memorial Day Sunday Funday at Mad River

Let loose at Mad River! There’s nothing like a little Sunday Funday and with great drink specials, a laidback river view and young energetic company, Mad River is the place to do it this weekend. Good news for future residents of The Royal Athena as well: It’s only a quick walk across the Pencoyd Bridge, of which their residency will get them exclusive access.


Beach Trip!

In Philly, we go “down the shore.” And that’s exactly what we’ve got in mind this Memorial Day weekend. Sure, Friday afternoon’s Memorial Day beach traffic on the Expressway may be a pain, but it’ll be worth the otherwise quick ride to Philadelphians’ favorite destinations in Ocean City, Sea Isle, Wildwood and Avalon, among others.


BONUS: Barbecue (eventually)

Although The Royal Athena will not be opening until later this summer, once it does, it will surely be the ultimate place to host an incredible outdoor, poolside barbecue on any type of occasion such as this one. This modern luxury apartment building in Belmont has all of the core components:

A heated pool, poolside grills, cabanas, great location with shuttle service to nearby transit, a clubhouse to rent out for parties, huge balconies and so much more.

While we’re very much looking forward to Memorial Day this weekend, we’re even more so looking forward to those of the future — at The Royal Athena. Join us in the excitement and find the luxury apartment of your dreams today.
