I just finished a week of job training in Telford, PA (but staying in a hotel in Quakertown,) and have another week to go…but the weekend (and Monday) is mine to enjoy! I’d like to head down and spend a day in Philly, but I’m not sure of the best way. The SEPTA website wasn’t too helpful, nor was google maps, because they say there’s no way to get there, because I don’t know of a nearby town that might have a train stop.
Obviously, I’d prefer to drive to a train station, park there, and then take that in…driving around Philly doesn’t seem desirable to me. And as an added bonus, what might be a good place to get lunch or dinner at? I’d prefer cheap-ish for lunch, dinner can be mid-range…company’s paying for it, but they have a $40 a day limit. As for type of food, I like most…not a seafood person, other than that, I’m wide open for suggestions…(I guess the cheesesteak is iconic, but is it really worth it to get one? And all I know for location is to avoid the “touristy” places like Geno’s, Tony Luke’s, and Pat’s.)
