Business Travel to Philadelphia: Must-Visits near the Convention Center



Description:

If you're traveling to Philadelphia on business, chances are you'll be spending some time at or near the Pennsylvania Convention Center, which is located in the heart of Chinatown and very near to the city's main arts corridor. Even if you're only in Philadelphia for a day or two, there are plenty of places to see and things to eat that will give you a feel for the city. If you need a hotel room, The Marriott adjoins the Convention Center, while several other upscale hotels, including the Doubletree and the Park Hyatt at the Bellevue, are within easy walking distance. At lunchtime, be sure to check out the Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia's famous farmers' market and eatery, where you'll find everything from soul food to sushi to Philly cheesesteaks. For dinner, Vietnam Palace in Chinatown is a sure bet, while several of restaurateur Stephen Starr's restaurants, like Jones and Morimoto, are just a short walk away. After dinner, a show at the Kimmel Center or the Academy of Music will be sure to please your ears and eyes. And, if you're in the city between Thanksgiving and New Year's, don't miss the Macy's Holiday Light Show, which has been pleasing patrons for decades. For a relaxing drink at the end of the night, try Time Cafe, which offers plenty of seating, live jazz several nights a week, and an extensive menu of scotch, whiskey, and even absinthe drinks. After this full day, you'll have a feel for Philadelphia, and you'll be rejuvenated for your next day of work.
