Traffic Information

Philadelphia is connected to New York to the north and to Baltimore and Washington in the south by Interstate 95. In Philadelphia, there can be heavy congestion at peak rush hour times. The downtown area is relatively compact so once you have parked your car in one of the many garages surrounding the center you can easily get around on foot or by public transport. With its proximity to the nation's capital, it is easy to rent a car in Philadelphia and drive down to Washington D.C.

Sixt Tips

With a car rental in Philadelphia all parts of this historic city are within easy reach of Philadelphia International Airport. Philadelphia is host to a fantastic variety of historical and cultural destinations and vibrant contemporary food and art scenes. With your vehicle, you can cruise around and check out iconic sites like the Liberty Bell or any of the 67 National Historic Landmarks. You can take a Founding Fathers Tour to see some of the highlights. There are plenty of shopping and dining destinations and great museums like the Rodin Museum, housing the largest collection of works by the artist outside of France. If you are looking for a quieter district away from the sightseers try Queen Village. Philadelphia is also known for having more murals than any other US city and you can take yourself on a self-guided tour to see these impressive walls. Besides a means to get to all the diversions of the city itself, a car rental provides a way to visit the beautiful countryside with many scenic drives in all directions.

What to Do in Philadelphia in Winter 2020

You can see a lot of the rich history of this city, even in winter. The Liberty Bell is outdoors but enjoys shorter lines to see the landmark in the cold weather. Independence Hall is a great place to go to get out of the cold. So is Reading Terminal Market, an indoor food market with both local specialties and meat and produce. There are several events in the winter including the Mummers Parade on New Years Day and the Philadelphia Auto Show at the beginning of February. The Philadelphia Flower Show, the largest indoor flower show in the world is at the beginning of March. Ahead of Christmas, Dilworth Park has an ice-skating rink and light show and there is a German-style holiday market at JFK Plaza. There can be a fair amount of snow and ice here in the winter, so it is a good idea to rent a vehicle with 4-wheel-drive and winter tires like an SUV.
