Your Guide to Philadelphia, PA

With its vast amount of historic landmarks and general liveliness, couples, singletons, and families alike will find that the sprawling city of Philadelphia is the perfect place for an exciting vacation. You’ll see more of Philly—and save money while doing so—when you obtain a cheap Philadelphia car rental for your next adventure.

Philadelphia Foundations

Originally inhabited by the Lenape Indians, Philadelphia as we know it was founded by William Penn in 1682. Benjamin Franklin’s printing press sprang into existence in the growing city in 1728, and in 1774 and 1775 Philadelphia hosted the First and Second Continental Congresses. Philadelphia grew swiftly after the Civil War and up into the early 20th century thanks to a plethora of industrial jobs and shipbuilding. At the turn of the 21st century, Philadelphia turned its attention to restoring many of its historic neighborhoods, and the city is once again attracting new residents thanks to up and coming industries.

The Famous Philly

While Philadelphia offers a number of attractions, a visit to the Independence National Historical Park should be a must-visit on your list. The National Historical Park is home to abundant U.S. history, and is a great place to take your children. After your trip to the park, head to the Reading Terminal Market to complete your day with some mouthwatering food and drinks. From the Terminal, head 3.6 miles across the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to Adventure Aquarium, which is home to what we believe are the only real, live sharks in Philadelphia.
Getting around without depending on public transportation doesn’t have to be a fishy situation. Here at CarRentals.com, we feature hundreds of vehicles at cheap daily rates. Renting a car will allow you the freedom to go where you want, when you want, without worrying about how much to pay for a taxi, or whether you'll have to deal with public transportation delays. For example, Lancaster is only 80 miles west of Philadelphia. Head out that way to experience the simpler lifestyles in Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

Deep-Fried Philly

If you’re visiting Philadelphia in the summer, you can expect warm, muggy weather. Average temperatures in the summer are in the high 70s, though they can shoot higher and the additional humidity makes can make it seem even hotter. Winter, by contrast, sees temperatures ranging from the low 30s to the high 50s. Freezing temperatures are not frequent, but they do occur with some regularity, so if you’re visiting between November and February, bring some warm clothing. Philadelphia does experience seasonal snow, though just how much can vary, so check the weather report before pulling on your snow boots.
