I'm doing an travel article for a publication on the best places to go in Philadelphia. Specifically, I would like local's opinions on the best Philly cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, hoagies, roast pork Italian sandwiches, and Wooder Ices in the city. If you have any other iconic foods that you can get while traveling in Philadelphia that should be mentioned, let me know!

The idea that there's one best cheesesteak place is a trap. The answer is that just about any corner pizza joint in Philadelphia will make you a pretty tasty cheesesteak, so you find your favorite among what's available within five blocks of your home. Same goes for cold hoagies.

The average corner pizza joint is an amazing place. Sometimes they even have good pizza. But they also have cheesesteaks, hoagies, great fries, salads, lottery, and all of your neighbors being social. If they have beer, that's where you go to buy less than a case of beer.

Lazaro's has the best pizza in the city! It's over there in Graduate Hospital area, just south of Rittenhouse, at 18th/South St. They have never disappointed me!

Hi Stanislav; as Mentioned the Cheapest Way from EWR to PHL Is; by taking the New Jersey Transit & than the Philadelphia Transit Company' ( Septa ). You'll Need to Take One New Jersey Transit from the Airport to Downtown & than Septa to Philadelphia; Pa. Good Luck & Enjoy Yourself & Stay Safe as well.

Hello CS's how long is the drive from the airport to the city center?

It's better to take the train from the airport to Center City. It's only $8!

Gibber9 , Philadelphia, USA, about 2 months ago

Dear Philly couchsurfers,

We are from the Netherlands and moving to Philadelphia next September. Of course we are very excited about that! It seems that everything is arranged: visa, house in West-Philly/University District, position for my boyfriend... BUT.... we are still looking for a nice, not too big daycare for our little daughter (17 months), so that I can have some time for myself a few days a week (to work a bit, and of course meet up and discover the city!).

Does anyone of you know (or know someone who knows) a way to find good daycare, preferably in and around University District? We have already tried some obvious ones, but they all have long waiting lists.

Or is there a site which offers good information on family/home child care? Is care.com for example a good site?

I hope to hear from you and I certainly hope to meet any of you after the summer!

Ciao, Esther

Hi Sam and Shara, thanks for replying. I am specifically looking in University district. We already tried the good ones we think, and are put on some waiting lists. Our favorite only starts in january and That's why we were thinking about something small scalae like nannies or home day care. We now subscribed to sittercity.com, seems to be.better than care.com..

Thanks and cheers! Esther
