Philadelphia travel tips

1) Is public transport in Philadelphia comfortable?

Public transport vehicles in Philadelphia are great, but the complexity of the transit system is another thing. Spend some time to learn the routes and transfers and everything will be fine! You can buy tickets at the Broad Street subway stop and in stores downtown, like Rite Aids.

2) See what life was like for early American settlers in Philadelphia

Make sure to walk around Elfreth's Alley in Philadelphia, America's oldest continuously inhabited residential street. Take a cup of flavoured coffee at ICI Macarons & Cafe; admire the gorgeous preserved homes and walk the cobblestone streets to see what life was like for early American settlers.

3) Remember about BYOB (bring your own bottle) in the restaurants in Philadelphia

Philadelphia (as Pennsylvania itself) has some strange liquor laws. Spirits are extremely expensive at local restaurants. Many establishments let you visitors bring their own alcohol, so feel free to ask if it is possible.
