Cheap flights from San Diego to Philadelphia

A trip to Philadelphia brings you to one of the most important cities in early U.S. history. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are both iconic symbols of American freedom. The rich heritage of Philly combines with a modern skyline, which includes the tallest buildings in Pennsylvania. A tour through the galleries at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, exposes you to one of the largest collections of European art in North America.

Key Facts

The quickest way to navigate downtown Philadelphia is by hopping on a historic trolley. You could also board underground metro trains to get around the City of Brotherly Love. If you prefer to explore Philadelphia by car, get on I-95 and drive along the Delaware River. You can also cross the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to reach Camden, New Jersey.

Park your car in south Philadelphia to enjoy professional basketball and ice hockey games at the Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia's premier indoor arena is also neighbored by Lincoln Financial Field, and Citizens Bank Park. Classical music lovers can reserve a premium seat at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

Hints and Tips

During your five and a half hour flight from San Diego International Airport (SAN), to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), make a list of the animals you'd like to visit at America's oldest zoo, Philadelphia Zoo.
