I’m really excited to interview Bob DiMenna of The Travelers Blueprint about Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bob’s tips for the best things to do in Philadelphia are awesome because he was born in Philly and loves the local history and culture. The city is a little blue-collar and has die-hard sports fans. And everyone is proud of their city.

Getting around Philadelphia
The local airport is Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), which is about 20-25 minutes on the Airport Line to downtown.
Bob says that there’s no need to rent a car when you’re staying in Philly. Public transit is widely available, and the city is very walkable. Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.
If you decide to explore outside the city limits, then a car can be a good idea. For the best offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.
When you only need a car for a couple of hours, you can rent by the hour with Zipcar. Join now to get $25 loaded into your account.
