Why rent a car in Philadelphia?
Packed with historic sights and colonial architecture, Philadelphia is fascinating to explore. While the cobblestone streets of Old City are best visited on foot, a car is handy for getting beyond the city center to places like the hilly, Victorian-lined Manayunk neighborhood, beautifully preserved Germantown and picturesque landscapes beyond.
Where to go in Philadelphia
The historic core that includes Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell is easily walkable. Hop on the Philly Phlash to access fantastic museums, Penn’s Landing waterfront and the Philadelphia Zoo. Driving is best to reach newly hip Fishtown, mellow Manayunk and the sports arenas and homey Italian restaurants of South Philly. Just 20 miles northwest of downtown is Valley Forge, a national historic park where George Washington and troops survived a bitter winter during the Revolutionary War. Some 40 miles north, the charming towns of New Hope and Lambertville offer antique shops, country B&Bs and rafting trips on the Delaware River. For seaside fun, you're less than two hours from the sparkling beaches of the Jersey Shore.
Getting around Philadelphia
Driving in downtown Philly isn't for amateurs. Aggressive drivers, badly potholed roads and narrow, traffic-clogged one-way streets add to the challenge. Street parking is hard to find. In the center, it's often easier to use parking lots. Watch out for pedestrians – they're everywhere downtown. Rush hour makes for some slow, white-knuckled driving, especially on the I-676 and I-95.

All the major rental agencies can be found at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your Philadelphia car rental from Hotwire.
