    Welcome to the area.

    I'm actually across the bridge, but I can help ya out some.

    The R8 goes right into the heart of center city. http://www.septa.org/maps/click_map.html The Market East Station is right in the heart of Center City- Old City is a couple of blocks east(lots of clubs/bars/restaurants... lil trendy and lil spendy)- There's Historic crap every direction from there. A few blocks SW is Jewelers Row, and pretty much anywhere between the station and Jewelers Row is shopping... including the Gallery(mall).

    Market East is kinda the main rail hub- you can switch to a subway to all over the city(stadiums, etc) or the PATCO line and head straight to Jersey(even as far as Atlantic City)

    Might wanna check out South Street. Kinda eclectic shopping/hang out/bar area...

    While you're around you should come out to the Victory meet on the 22nd. There's a thread in the Tri-State section somewhere, Its around 30 min west of where you are.

    Sorry if I rambled...

That is good news that the r8 goes into downtown. I forced myself to drive to city line target tonight without any GPS and I did okay so I am learning slowly!!! Anymore info etc would be appreciated!!

    As long as you like driving and beer you will enjoy the Victory meet.

    You can also try the General Lafayette Brewpub. Its on Germantown Ave...

    JR(WRX Wagone) isn't far from you, he probably would have some good ideas/places in the city(when he gets around to checking this thread).

    Yeah, he's been quite busy recently.

    I actually think Jesse was quite informative with things.

    Manayunk, South Street, Old City, Chestnut Hill. All nice parts of town. There are a good number of up and coming areas.

    I don't make it down to the city as much as I would like, but what sort of things are you looking for?

    And do check out the Victory Meet.

    I work in Philly everyday, go out in some part of this place almost every weekend and love it...lets not forget about University City...it has its little dive bars and places to go which are fun as well. Lot of younger crowd around there and definitely lots of ladies. Manayunk is the biggest cliche place to go out, but its a ton of fun. My best friend lives in Manayunk and its a good time.

    But what everyone has mentioned are the places to be...welcome to Philly!

    Flat Rock is awesome BTW!!!
