Philadelphia travel tips

Best time to visit Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s rich historical heritage and important sites such as Independence Hall and Liberty Bell attract hordes of tourists and field trips of school children. These visitors come in the summer months from June – August. Large crowds drive up hotel rates at this time of the year. For shorter queues at attractions and good bargains on room rates, it is best to visit Philadelphia from March – May. Average temperatures range from 35 – 45 degrees Fahrenheit in March to 55 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit in May. September may also see a drop in tourists, but the cheapest time to visit Philadelphia is in the winter months from November – February. Average temperatures during this time hover around 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

Getting around Philadelphia

Many of the attractions in Philadelphia are clustered near the Old City neighborhood, within a short walk from each other, so you can get around easily on foot. For some other attractions that are located further away, you can hop on to the subway trains, trolleys or buses operated by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). Fares start at $2.50 USD. You also have the purple-colored PHLASH buses which operate daily from 10.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. between May – September, and on weekends during the holiday season of December – January. The bus stops at most of the popular attractions and the fare is $2.00 USD per ride or $5.00 USD for an all-day pass. The city’s official bike-share program, called Indego, allows unlimited 30-minute trips with a 1-day pass at $10.00 USD. Taxis are readily available and the meter starts at approximately $3.00 USD. If you don’t mind expensive parking charges or navigating through the traffic with several one-way streets, driving is also an option. It is definitely worth checking for deals on car rentals with momondo.
