Why locals love it

Wawa is life. That's all the really needs to be said. The rest of the nation is jealous of us for having Wawa (no joke) and thinks of it as some kind of legend. They wonder: can a convenient store really be so great that people are literally obsessed with it? YES. Because Wawa.

Why you should visit it

Wawa means a lot to Philadelphians. If we move away, this is in our top 5 things we miss most about home. And all of us still in Philly feel so sorry for those folks! It's such a big deal that Barack Obama, among others, famously came by for a hoagie (a cold cuts sandwich). They also have A LOT of other food, including snacks, coffee, and pretzels.

Special tip

The address listed is one of very many Wawas. The largest one (6th & Chestnut) differs from the typical experience. See that one and another one!
