Upon arriving in Philadelphia from San Francisco, visitors on business or here to explore, will be immersed in American history amid a modern and cosmopolitan city. One of the biggest cities in the Northwest, the City of Brotherly Love is full of attractions for you to explore. From the Franklin Institute to the Adventure Aquarium, there is no shortage of things to see and do. Center City also offers a huge array of restaurants like Barbuzzo, and nightlife options such as the vibrant Good Dog Bar for visitors to explore.
Located ten miles southwest of the center of the city, the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is a busy airport, serving as the primary international hub of US Airways. After collecting your luggage and rental car, you can expect the drive from the airport to take about 15 minutes, depending on traffic.
If you are looking for something to do on your way into the city, try the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park, located less than six miles from PHL. This park rests along the Delaware River and boasts a variety of picnic areas, walkways, historic buildings and museums like the Swedish Historical Museum.
There are many nonstop flights from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Philadelphia, which last a little over five hours. Flights with layovers tend to make stops in Dallas, Chicago, Cincinnati or Salt Lake City.
