Philadelphia travel tips

1) Take the benefit of a SEPTA family pass if you use public transport in Philadelphia

If you get around Philadelphia by public transport with a family, buy a SEPTA family pass. It costs $30 and offers unlimited one-day travel for up to five family members.

2) Walk around the greenest place in Philadelphia

The Rail Park at Noble Street in Philadelphia is a great place for walking. Swing on a bench and walk the paths. If you get hungry, turn to the nearby Chinatown to snack with the American Dream sushi roll at Yakitori Boy.

3) Where should I go to see the sunset in Philadelphia?

If you want to see a perfect view of Philadelphia at dusk, go east from Strawberry Mansion Bridge along the Schuylkill River Trail about a half-hour before the sunset. Along the way, as the sky slowly changes color, stop every so often to watch behind you as dusk unfolds to the west.
