Sorry for keeping your question locked all afternoon. I love doing
the GA travel questions but have to wait till I finish my regular job
so I appreciate your patience. Most researchers would have had this
information back to you within the hour. Hope it was worth the wait.
Philadelphia International Airport:
"Philadelphia International Airport is 5 miles (8km) southwest of the
city center. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation System SEPTA
runs rail lines from the airport into the city every 30 minutes.
Shuttle buses, limousines and taxis also operate between the airport
and the city. There are rental car agencies at the airport and in
town, but driving isn't recommended in central Philadelphia; parking
is difficult and regulations strictly enforced. Most downtown
distances are short enough to walk.
SEPTA provides comprehensive transportation service in the city and
suburbs, both on rail and bus systems. A trolley bus is a good way to
visit many of the sights. Three subway lines travel under the city."
Getting around/helpful numbers:
HOLIDAY INN/PHILADELPHIA STADIUM
Holiday Inn/Legends Sports Bar
Legends Sports Bar and Grille
Location: In Hotel - Hotel
"For the sports lover, our own Philly Legends Sports Bar and Grille is
the place to be! Legends serves great appetizers, cooked to order
burgers, and sandwiches. Thirty-two colored televisions, one
big-screen television, and DJ entertainment on weekends adds to your
enjoyment. During special events, live entertainment varies."
I didn't find any Bosnian/Serbo-Croatian restaurants but I hope you
find something to your linking in the ones I've chosen. Most
restaurants are about 15 minutes away from your hotel. You can check
any restaurant that looks interesting by pulling up the restaurant at
citysearch (http://philadelphia.citysearch.com), scrolling down to the
bottom of the page, enter your hotel address and get directions.
