Thanks, JoAnn, for the great info! Funny coincidence, I know Rob DiGiacomo, he wrote for us when we wrote and edited a travel guidebook for Harper Collins back in the 90s!

The best way to get from NYC-Phila is Megabus.com... fares are as low as $1 each way depending on when you book and what times you choose; typically r/t are $15-20. Ride takes two hours... Other good tips: lots and lots of generous happy hours around town, and in the new Comcast Center, Table 31 has cheap bar eats all night every night. Check examiner.com Cheap Eats Phila contributor for more (a friend of mine, Rob DiGiacomo). Also, check the Center City District's web site, they run lots of free promos (like Weds eve, free parking near Rittenhouse and South St shopping areas).

I'm not as up on the cheap NY-Philly buses as I should be. But I'll praise Philly's BYOB restaurants 'till your ears fall off. At least count, there were about 200 of them, and they range from little ethnic places to informal spots with very good food (e.g. Audrey Claire) to serious chefs' showplaces. Lots of young people take advantage of this, walking in with brown bags. And there is nothing like this phenomenon anywhere else in the USA.

Hi folks,

I'm trying to help a fellow travel writer who's doing a story about on-the-cheap northeast corridor travel FROM New York City TO Philadelphia. Just wondering if you have any ideas on the best/cheapest ways for 20/30-somethings to get from NY to Philly? Also, what are some awesome, on-the-cheap things for
20/30-somethings to do? For example, the oddball art galleries in Old City that open their doors the first Friday of every month and let you browse as you wish, offer wine/cheese... plus all sorts of street musicians/artists set up shop. I'd be grateful for any leads, as providing this info may help us publicize Go-Lo! Thanks!
