City Information

Philadelphia

We may feel a little bit more than just brotherly love for Philadelphia, a city steeped in history and culture. Where else can you channel your inner Rocky Balboa on his epic run, and later enjoy an authentic Philly cheesesteak as a reward?

Philadelphia’s affordability (especially compared to other East Coast cities) is just one of many reasons it is among Wanderu’s best destinations for college students. Another reason is how much there is to do! Early American history takes precedence at Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, while museums abound on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, sometimes called the most artistic mile in the city. Head to Reading Terminal Market to fuel up for a night hitting the bars, clubs, and live music joints that line South Street.

Philadelphia is a major hub for both Greyhound and Amtrak, and its 30th Street Station is one of the busiest stations in the country. The plentitude of ground travel and the nearby Philadelphia International Airport make this exciting city very easily accessible, even on a budget.

Savannah

As the oldest city in the state of Georgia, Savannah still impressively preserves a charming vibe that so many cities have lost. For fans of U.S. history, the city is a must-not-miss, as it houses one of the oldest Black churches in the country, the First African Baptist Church. Fort Pulaski, famous for being a safe haven for enslaved African Americans, has now been converted into a national monument where visitors can learn more about the city’s heritage. Among the most unique destinations in Savannah is the 100-year-old Bonaventure Cemetery, which serves as the final resting place for many famous people.

Savannah's cuisine is just one of many reasons the city ranks in the best vacation destinations in Georgia. Savannah offers staple Southern fried dishes that will indulge your senses. The best place to try these indulgences is The Olde Pink House. If you are looking for some black-owned eateries, Sisters Real Southern Cooking and Geneva’s Famous Chicken & Cornbread Co. will suffice.

Visitors can reach Savannah by bus via service from several different bus carriers, most of which operate out of the bus terminal at 610 W Oglethorpe Ave. The local Amtrak station takes on the Palmetto, and the Silver Meteor and Silver Star trains. The principal airport in the city, the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, sits 8 miles northwest of the Savannah Historic District, and it also provides quick access to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
