Because its two main venues are horse track racing and a casino, Harrah's Philadelphia is locally called a "racino." These are its two claims to recreation and leisure, but it is in fact one of the local anchors for dining out, shopping, nightlife, and private events. It offers five restaurants of different styles of cuisine and also has a bar where you can kick back and enjoy drinks. Perfect for a night on the town, there is even an ultra-lounge where you can organize a larger, club-scale evening out. Whether you want a day at the races or an evening with food and drink, this multiplex has it all.
Chester County Histor
Chester has a history of primarily Dutch settlement that dates from 1644. Its cultural center preserves the long history that followed in a cultural center right in town through various rotating exhibits and public outreach programs, but the center itself is more comprehensive than just being a museum. It is also a space that offers venues for weddings, business meetings, and other private events. The center also hosts an annual family day where you and your young ones can explore through hands-on demonstrations such as butter making and an interactive clothing display what life in early settlement periods was like.
Shopping in Downtown
Downtown Chester has a number of small, unique shops as well as retail stores that easily allow you to browse and poke around while you do your errands. Shops include everything from clothing boutiques, which are vintage, second-hand, or of special interest, to a local winery and florist to an art gallery, where you can browse different pieces. There is also a local Rite Aid and other errands-focused shops where you can pick up the everyday items you need. The streets are quaint with many historic buildings and easily walkable, which makes for scenic and unhurried strolling as you go about your shopping day.
