Flying out of Philadelphia

Philadelphia International Airport is serviced by 12 airlines, including American Airlines, Frontier, United and US Airways. It's easily accessible by bus or car. Located just 7 miles from downtown, cab rides are fairly expensive at a flat-rate of $28.50. All cabs accept credit cards and fit up to three passengers. SEPTA rail line rides cost $7 to the city's center.

Parking at the airport is fairly affordable at $20 per day in the garage lots and $11 per day in the economy lot. Overnight parking is not allowed in the short-term parking lots located on the ground floors of the garages; however, the daily charge is capped at $40.

There are currently 77 coffee shops, snack counters and restaurants available throughout the airport so you can grab a meal before your flight. Popular options include Dunkin' Donuts, Vino Volo and fast-food joints like Wendy's.

Landing in Boston

Boston is famous for seafood, baseball and high-quality museums, as well as historical sites tied in with the founding of the United States. Moderate temperatures during the summer and cold, snowy conditions during the winter help shape the popular tourist seasons.

Start Exploring Beantown

Inside Boston's Logan Airport, you will find nine car-rental companies, including Avis, Budget and National. You can also take the subway downtown for the affordable price of $2.50, or find a taxi to the downtown area for up to $45.

Springtime in Boston is beautiful, albeit chilly. The weather hovers between the mid-30s and low 60s, providing perfect weather for St. Patrick's Day celebrations, Boston Restaurant Week in March and April's Boston Marathon. Fall brings temperatures in the 60s and 70s, along with the Boston Film Festival. Summer is the most popular time to visit, sporting 80°F temperatures and several music, food and art festivals. Winter in Boston comes with snow, freezing temperatures and the community's popular reenactment of the Boston Tea Party.

Other popular things to do in Beantown include taking in a ball game at Fenway Park, walking along the Freedom Trail-with stops at the Boston Massacre site and the house of Paul Revere-and stopping at one of the area's top museums. The Museum of Fine Art, Museum of Science, New England Aquarium and Boston Children's Museum commonly rank in the top spots for tourists. Tours of the Gardner House and the Samuel Adams Brewery also add a bit of spice to any trip.

Leaving from Boston

Returning home through Logan Airport is fairly quick and easy, though you may not want to leave the fresh seafood and sites behind. Packing everything you want to see into a Boston excursion can be difficult. Many people begin planning for their return visit as soon as they leave, and they find big savings on their travels from Philadelphia to Boston through Orbitz.com.
