It is a nice place with museums and warships along the Delaware river. In summers it is having concerts at Delaware river bank. Enjoy food on ship restaurants.

There isn't a whole lot to do, but it's a nice way to spend some time on a nice day. Lots of food trucks, some boat museums. Can rent swan paddle boats and take boat rides. Nothing amazing but a good way to kill time.

Penns Landing has many things to do, museum, food stalls, arcade, boat rental. You could easily spend the day here and just do it all. Very clean and nice.

None that I could find within a mile or so. I'd suggest taking a bus. Parking is too expensive.
