GETTING HERE

Philadelph­ia is easy to get to by plane, train, bus or automobile, so no matter where you are coming from, you won’t have a hard time finding us. • Many travelers fly directly into Philadelph­ia Internatio­nal Airport (PHL), convenient­ly located seven miles (11 km) away. • SEPTA (Philadelph­ia’s public transit system) takes you from the airport to Center City in 20 minutes by train, and SEPTA’s Airport Line leaves in 30-minute intervals, with a one-way fare of approximat­ely 8 USD. septa.org • Rather take a taxi? It’s only a 20-minute ride to Center City, and costs about 28.50 USD, plus gratuity. • You can also take an Amtrak train, rent a car or shuttle from Newark Liberty Internatio­nal Airport (EWR) or John F. Kennedy Internatio­nal Airport (JFK)—both are two hours or less by car.

In fact, there are hotels and restaurant­s at every price point in the heart of Center City, plus a top-rated public transit system and plenty of taxis to take you around. Thanks to founder William Penn’s smart and simple grid street design, our downtown is easy to navigate. The Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers border Center City’s 25 blocks on the east and west. Keep in mind that streets running east-west (south of Market Street) are named after trees, while north-south streets are numbered.
