I-GO Getaways: Philadelphia

Chicago isn’t the only city with a non-profit car sharing program. Cities like Philadelphia, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Toronto and Vancouver (to name a few) have them too. And with your I-GO membership, you have access to them all. Call I-GO at 773-278-4446 a week prior to your trip and we’ll coordinate the details with our car sharing partners and get you driving.

To promote this feature of your I-GO membership, we are bringing you a series of travel guides to help you plan your trips to these fun and exciting cities. First up, Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Guide: PhillyCarShare

What to do: While there are can’t miss historic sites right in downtown Philly (like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall), use PhillyCarShare and head out to beautiful Bucks County. Drive scenic River Road along the Delaware River, tour eight wineries, explore historic towns and museums and check out 11 covered bridges. Antique shops, specialty boutiques, art galleries and open-air markets offer a variety of shopping opportunities.

Where to Stay: Check out Penn’s View Hotel located in the heart of Old Philadelphia, the birthplace of America. There are PhillyCarShare locations located within blocks of the hotel.

Where to Eat: It’s not Chicago deep-dish, but Osteria’s wood burning oven pizza was rated the city’s best. Unpretentious, lively and fun, Osteria is a Philly favorite serving up great Italian food.
