Walking and Mass Transit in Philadelphia?

Jump to last reply

I’ll be hanging in Philly for 2 days next week while my friend attends a conference. I am from NYC so I am very ‘city savvy’ and love exploring on my own. I have never been to Philly so I’m looking forward to taking in the historic sights and some of your great fine art. Here is my question – I will be staying at a hotel near city hall, is it a nice walk to the Museum of Art or should a take the bus (I will not have a car)? Since I’m from NYC I am used to walking everywhere and it looks like it could be a pretty (but lengthy) walk along the river on Ben Frank. Pkwy. I have the whole day to kill so time isn’t an issue and I could always hop on a bus to come back – right?

One last question – I’m a smarty pants 37 year old who likes looking at architecture, art, exhibits etc…is there enough to see and do in Independence Park to last me a full day (10am – 4pm). I thought I would pop over there on the subway and spend one of my days taking it all in. If not what other things can I walk to from that area?

Any other recommendations on stuff to do or places to eat etc… are totally welcome too!
