How many times have you strolled down the historic streets of Center City and wondered what those varied and spectacular homes – and gardens - look like inside?  Now's your chance as more than a dozen locations – from 15th Street to Fitler Square – open their doors and welcome you to come in and take a look.  Don't miss this year's tour, rain or shine. Among the variety of townhouses and condominiums in this once-a-year spectacular open house tour are a Spruce Street mini-mansion (location for the film “The Best and the Brightest”), a contemporary and award-winning Leed Platinum registered “green” Fitler Square home,  and significant historic buildings in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.
