My spouse and I will be visiting Philadelphia soon. Are the neighborhoods between the Amtrak Station (30th Street), The Sofitel (South 17th Street), and the various museums such as the Barnes Foundation North of the Sofitel suitable and safe for walkers?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    "Is X safe?" is always a matter of opinion and always depends on who's asking. – David Richerby Nov 4 '18 at 15:42

Safe in what way?

I'd say it is as safe as any North American city in downtown areas.

Take regular precautions, be mindful of your surroundings, keep bags closed, leave valuables at home or in hotel room.

I would walk from the hotel to the Barnes Foundation; but maybe not from the train station, especially with luggage as it does not look nice (safe, but not nice).

    If you have to ask "safe in what way?" then the question is probably unclear and/or opinion-based. – JoErNanO Nov 4 '18 at 20:44
