In Philadelphia visit Old City to see a handful of the most historical landmarks in the United States including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House. It’s rewarding to plan a trip in advance with a guided tour or spontaneously explore on your own -- the history is undeniable!
For those looking for more outdoor-based activities, Philadelphia is home to Fairmount Park, which has more than 9,200 acres of open space and trails. To get there, take a trip up the Schuylkill River Trail, a multi-purpose path open to both bikers and pedestrians with beautiful views of the downtown skyline and Schuylkill River. Also located across Philadelphia are 100’s of multiple-story murals that connect to the cultural and historical roots of the city.
Camden is home to the Adventure Aquarium, an extensive and long-standing aquatic attraction. Located on the shores of the Delaware River in Camden is also the historic USS New Jersey, a fully preserved battleship from World War II. Camden also hosts a variety of critically acclaimed local restaurants such as Fresh and Co., Camden Deli and The Drouthy Bear. Take a walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge to get a feel of both cities and experience excellent views.
Many residents of Philadelphia do not have a car and rely on public transportation to get around. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) operates buses, subways, and a commuter rail that provide access to most areas of the city.
Although New Jersey Transit does provide routes around Camden, a car is likely needed for those living or teaching in Camden.
