Pros and Cons of Meetup Spaces in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is certainly a great place to meet people. With plenty of history and culture, plus lots to do, it’s a great place to hold a meetup for whatever your tastes are. As with every city though, there are downsides as well.

  • Plenty of outdoor activity
    If you want to be active during or after your meetup, then Philadelphia is the place. There’s lots of greenery and outdoor activities for people to do in the city.

  • Decent cost of living
    Compared to other major cities, Philly has a lower average cost of living. This can make renting your Philadelphia meetup space and going to do activities much cheaper.

  • Tons of opportunity
    If you’re looking to settle there and look for job opportunities then you’re in the right place. There’s a great deal of industry and places to find employment in various fields.

  • Rich history
    We’re talking about one of the oldest cities in the country, if you’re looking to explore and learn something, then Philadelphia has loads of that. Perfect for a meetup of history buffs.

  • Good public transit
    It never hurts to be able to get around well in a city like Philadelphia. Whether you’re going to and from your meetup space to elsewhere, or just touring the town, the public transit system is quite useful.

Disadvantages

  • No affordable housing
    While the cost of living is good in Philly, you won’t find a lot of affordable places to live. This can make staying there indefinitely a difficult thing, no matter how many friends you meet.

  • Driving is difficult
    While there might be good public transit, drivers will find it difficult to get anywhere at all. It’s best to find alternate means of transportation in Philadelphia.

  • Jobs are specialized
    There’s plenty of work and opportunity in Philly, but certain fields take up the majority of the workforce. This can make it difficult to make a living if you aren’t connected to the right people. This is why meetups are so beneficial.

  • Congestion is a problem
    The city can be overpopulated, particularly during the warmer months when more people are traveling. While this is great for meeting new people, it can be a detriment to trying to get any peace and quiet.

  • Harsh winters
    If you’re not a fan of heavy snow, then Philadelphia may not be the place for you. The winters can go from mild to harsh in a heartbeat, making even the best-laid plans go awry.
