San Francisco-based ridesharing company Lyft just announced this year’s top destinations in 45 cities around the country in the fourth edition of its annual Lyftie Awards.
Peep the list of top Philly destinations in 2018 and you’ll find a lot of usual suspects. Of course the most popular concert venue was the Wells Fargo Center, and the top neighborhood among night-time riders was Center City.
People took Lyfts to Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philly for late night bites and hailed rides to Morgan’s Pier for drinks. Hottest brunch spot? That would be ritzy Parc, near Rittenhouse Square.
“The Lyfties are a way for us to recognize the places that truly make Philadelphia unique and to say thank you for sharing a ride with us to places like Morgan’s Pier and Pat’s King of Steaks,” said Andrew Wolff, Lyft’s GM for Pennsylvania, in an email.
