Perhaps too ironically "Manayunk" is derived from the Native term meaning "where we go to drink." They probably meant where they drank water, from the Schuylkill River. North of the Schuylkill River, upstream from the mouth of Wissahickon Creek, Manayunk is another place for the young, hip crowd to unwind. Main Street in Manayunk has a huge assortment of bars and restaurants, and while some places can be pricey, there are still the average affordable places as well. Named a National Historic District in 1983, "Philadelphia's Main Street" boasts more than 65 chic boutiques and galleries and dozens of restaurants. There is good live music just about every night at the various bars and restaurants and on the weekends you can usually find hundreds of people out on the streets walking around, jumping from one place to another. Of course, there are also some huge traffic problems, and parking is typically a little hard to find, so plan to carpool if you're coming from another part of the city, and expect to pay for valet fees.
