Housing and Meals
Workshop staff will be arranging for a block of hotel rooms a short walk from the NEH/Franklin Workshop Site adjacent to Independence National Historical Park. Staff will also assist Summer Scholars in arranging roommates from within the group cohort.
The historic district has a plethora of choices for daily meals. In addition to a host of restaurants and delis, the neighborhood includes small grocery stores, pharmacies, and other shops. Philadelphia’s Chinatown is a short walk from the hotel. Many former Summer Scholars have found it to eat a Philadelphia cheesesteak, or several Philadelphia Cheesesteaks, during their week in Philadelphia.
Following NEH policy, family members and guests are not permitted to attend any workshop lectures or activities; as such, we do not encourage Summer Scholars to bring partners or family members, to allow participants to fully focus on the workshop’s daily activities.
