Budget Philadelphia flights typically land at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), a US Airways hub, which also benefits from the phenomenal development of Southwest Airlines. Consequently, Southwest has recently made major contributions to the airport's infrastructure, including a shared ticket counter area, unified security checkpoint and expansion for Terminals D and E, with more retail and restaurant space. Public ground transfers are fast and easy, using SEPTA's Airport Line and four relevant stops. Basic fare on board is $7. Day passes are a great value at $11. SEPTA has three airport bus routes. Be prepared with exact change for the $2 initial fare and $1 transfers. Tokens are available for $1.55. A simple fee of $28.50 will get you a taxi to central Philadelphia.

The mild fall brings the vivid colors of turning leaves. The storied Eastern Side Penitentiary sponsors an annual haunted house called "Terror Behind the Walls." Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade is among the most ornate in the country.
