Where next?

If you don't have a car, you can still reach any large city in the Northeast Corridor -- DC, Baltimore, Wilmington, NYC, or Boston. If you have a car, you can travel north to the Pocono mountains or west to Pennsylvania's Amish Country.

Attraction tip

Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Penn Museum, Independence National Historical Park, Eastern State Penitentiary -- and if you have a car, Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine Valley are both less than an hour away.

Nightlife & entertainment tip

Philadelphia has a wonderful live-theater scene, intimate and surprisingly affordable. Check out the Wilma Theater just south of City Hall, with its $25 tickets, or Quintessence Theatre Company in the Mt. Airy neighborhood.

Budget meal tip

Reading Terminal Market, two blocks east and one block north of City Hall. Over 80 food vendors, including several Pennsylvania Dutch bakeries. This is the place to sample what Philly has to offer. Most options well under $10.
