Philly: There and Back Again

About 40% of the US population lives within a day’s drive of Philly. That being said, getting there and back again is easy.

Philadelphia is easily accessible by car, air or train. Driving to Philly from New York is about 1.5 hours; from Washington, DC, it’s 2.5 hours. The heart of the city, an area filled with restaurants, bars, shopping and the convention center is two minutes right off of I-95. If you aren’t driving but do need a car, IACP 2013 attendees can receive 5% off of car rentals though Dollar Rent A Car. For more information about this deal, visit our website.

If driving isn’t your first preference, look into traveling via Amtrak, which operates high-speed trains along the Northeast Corridor. The Amtrak station at 30th Street is also centrally located right by a number of IACP official conference hotels. To top it off, conference goers can take advantage of a 20% discount off of coach tickets. Attendees flying to Philadelphia can also benefit from a discount through United Air to Philadelphia International Airport. For more information on that deal, visit our website.

Once in Philly, getting around is just as easy. The Philadelphia International Airport boasts a number of rental car companies and taxi services, and is connected to SEPTA, the public transit rail line in Philly. Major stops on the SEPTA Line include the 30th Street Station, the Philadelphia International Airport and the Market East Station (the stop closest to the convention center). Additionally, this year’s conference attendees can park at the daily lot for free at the Mann Center.
