Cheap Tickets from Philadelphia

In The City of Brotherly Love, history is never far from the surface. Colonial architecture and important revolutionary war sites are scattered throughout the city. Philadelphia is made up of many distinct neighborhoods, from the manicured central districts to the gritty industrial sectors, each adds its own flavor to the city’s character.

Flights from Philadelphia

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is the most important airport in the Delaware Valley, serving well over 30 million passengers every year. PHL is US Airways’ second largest hub and its largest international hub. Southwest also has a major presence in PHL and continues to grow rapidly. More than 16 major airlines flying to 130 domestic and international destinations means that it’s usually easy to get your hands on cheap flights from Philadelphia.

The growth of the airport and its corresponding volume of passengers can make navigating your way through PHL a challenge, so it’s important to leave extra time for connecting flights. Philadelphia International Airport consists of 7 main terminal buildings. Terminals A East and A West, B, C, D, and E are all connected. To reach the separate Terminal F from within the airport, you’ll need to catch a free shuttle from Terminal C.

Ground transport includes taxis with a flat rate of $28.50 to the city center, the SEPTA R1 Regional Rail Line, and the #37 SEPTA bus, which stops at all terminals. You can also find the usual complement of hotel and private shuttles, limos, and rental cars.

Stuff to do in Philadelphia

Many of Philly’s best attractions are totally free, such as the Liberty Bell Center, Rittenhouse Square, Independence Hall, and a huge amount of public art, including large sculptures by major artists all around Center City.

Philly also has a burgeoning restaurant scene. Try the authentic Andalucian fare at Amada in Old City, or sample simple American food raised to an art at Vernick on Walnut Street. (But save one meal for a cheesesteak!)

You can also go on a museum binge, because Philadelphia is packed with some of the best: the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute Science Museum, Mutter Museum, Rosenbach Museum & Library, Academy of Natural Sciences, and Rodin Museum.

Advice to tourists Visiting Philadelphia

Summertime weather is lovely in Philadelphia, but you’ll be fighting the crowds and paying a premium. Try paying a visit in autumn. You’ll need a jacket, (especially in the evening, when temps can drop to the low 50s) but the weather can have lovely dry spells in October. The uneven development and revitalization of Philly means that the safety of neighborhoods can change quickly, from block to block. Plan your routes in advance, and stay alert to your surroundings.
