  • Go for a run over the bridge, cheese steak nomming tourists. Yes, there's a hill (two if you plan on coming back, lol) but the view of the city from Camden is worth it. Your eyes and gut will thank you.
  • Traffic is acceptable. The yellow dashes on the road need to be repainted.
  • Great bridge. Does what it's suppose to do.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
