Philadelphia Airport, outlet mall distance

by mchenryp

I want to fly in to Philadelphia airport, stay close to airport. What is the closest outlet mall to the airport and do I need to rent a car or do they provide shuttles - any of the airports.

Re: Philadelphia Airport, outlet mall distance

by travelmad478

Franklin Mills Mall is the closest outlet mall, but if you want a better shopping experience, go to King of Prussia mall. (Google the names for locations.) The two are roughly the same drive time from the airport, about 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. You will need to rent a car, as there will not be shuttle service between the airport and the malls.

One thing to add (okay, maybe more than one)

by PR-7

No law requires that items sold at "outlet malls" be any less expensive than the exact same item (or pretty much) sold at a discount store or on the Internet. If you want to shop simply for the experience of shopping, King of Prussia area is as good as it gets. If you are fascinated by the idea of outlet malls, then Franklin Mills is the only one in the Philly area. If you're trying to save money, be certain you check the online price for the items you are looking for.

One last thing: Delaware, just down the road on I-95, has no sales tax. Pennsylvania's is 6% (7% within the city limits of Philadelphia), but there is no sales tax on clothing.

Philadelphia Flower Show

by asturnut

Experience spring in all it's glory!!!
The Flower Show is the premier annual floral and horticultural event on the East Coast. This past year was really super!!! I've never seen so many orchids in my life. Every year the display portion of the convention is very different, depending on the theme for the year. The most impressive display was about 4 years ago- it was a huge faux cathedral with the stained glass windows made of flowers. It was really amazing. My favorite part of the show however, is not the displays, but the vendors. As a person who is really into horticulture, I really look forward to purchasing and testing out items that I can normally only mail order. I've gotten odd plants, kick ass pruners, unusual seeds and even some great culinary items there too.

If you plan ahead, you can look for discount tickets and package deals. If you make a day out of the event (since you can easily kill 6 hours or more there), then the $20 tickets don't seem like such a bad deal. Of course, there's always the problem of parking, but if you car pool, or park in the suburbs and take public transpo, then the cost of parking isn't a big deal either.

By the last day of the show, a lot of the displays are marred because people can't keep their selfish, grimy hands off the displays. Thousands of people visit the show- if a hundred people a day touch a display- it's damaged. Flowers are fragile... The show is also very crowded and people are very insensitive to handicapped and elderly people in wheelchairs. We have had problems with this every year.

The food at the show is grossly overpriced and terrible. So now every year I pack a lunch and snacks and my family is good to go. No problem. Regardless of the problems, it's worth it- it's a one of a kind event. http://www.theflowershow.com/home/index.html

Christopher Columbus Monument

by yooperprof

The Italian American community in Philadelphia may not elect mayors any longer, but it still has some clout. "Christopher Columbus" is very much a "contested site" in history today - meaning there is a raging debate over his record and the manner in which he should be remembered. But you would never know it from this recently dedicated marker, which continues to follow the "great white man" school of interpretation. At any rate, I'm still not clear the precise relevance of Columbus to William Penn's settlement.

Autumn in Jim Thorpe

by edachsund

Jim Thorpe is the top place to enjoy especially the scenary during Autumn. It's chilled out there I know, so you have to wear few layer tshirt or whatever u want to keep your self warm enough.

In Jim Thorpe also, you can shoppe around, the prices is ok. This picture I captured before back from bicycle ride in the Lehigh River. It's pretty awesome.
