Located in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania, on the border of New Jersey, Philadelphia is a beautifully diverse city where the arts and sciences flourish. Rich with history and loaded with significant landmarks, like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the city is also known for its innovative and creative culture. The birthplace to Philadelphia soul, the music scene has also supported major artists in hip hop and rock. With well-kept urban parks and numerous museums to visit, there’s always something to do in Philly. Plus with teams like the Phillies, the 76ers, and the Eagles, you can take pride in the home team.
While Philadelphia is extremely walkable and a car is always convenient for commuting, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, or SEPTA, offers bus, rail, and trolley services to get you to your destinations quickly and easily. But they’re not the only trains in town! Connect with Amtrak to travel outside of the city and head from Philly to New York on a New Jersey Transit train. But, if biking is your favorite mode of transport, check out the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and get familiar with all the local trails and connectors.
