When you travel to a major city, there’s always an opportunity for a tour; Philadelphia is no different. At our Philadelphia International Airport long-term parking company, we suggest booking your own tour to learn more about the beautiful city. Here are some tour suggestions:
Philadelphia is a fairly walkable city, which means you can easily plan a walking tour. If you want to get a true taste of Philly, consider the South Philly Culture tour. This takes you through the South Ninth Street Italian Market, the Magic Gardens, and the sights of South Philly. If you like beer or wine, try a pub crawl through one of Philly’s many lively neighborhoods. Some popular ones include Fishtown, East Passyunk, Northern Liberties, and Rittenhouse Square. Philadelphia is also filled with fine arts, so try planning a museum tour. Or if you’re a foodie, taste all of the classic Philly eats the city has to offer.
At our Philadelphia International Airport long-term parking company, we love the amount of history Philadelphia holds. One of the best historical tours is the “Constitutional” tour. This tour takes you to see more than 20 iconic sights, including the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and more. It’s around three miles long and is available as a guided tour or a self-guided tour. You’ll also find guided historical tours like the Founding Fathers tour, the Old City tour, or the Benjamin Franklin tour. No matter which tour you choose, you’ll get a healthy dose of history.
One of the most classic city tours you can take is a double-decker bus tour. These tours are ideal for those who want to walk a little, but also want to see as much of the city as possible. A double-decker bus tour lets you hop on and hop off of the bus to take in sights like the Philadelphia Zoo, the Betsy Ross House, Reading Terminal Market, the Franklin Institute, and many, many more. Visitors can enjoy one-day, two-day, or three-day passes to see just a few sights or the entire city. The best part is, the tours are narrated, so you can learn even more about the area you’re exploring.
