If you're coming to Philadelphia from New Jersey, consider a trip across the Delaware River on the ferry. It's faster and more pleasant than a drive across any of the five bridges, and you don't have to worry about parking. Tickets and special RiverPass tickets can be purchased at the Philadelphia and Camden terminals and also at Independence Visitors Center. The service will be available only till 30th September, after which it is available for schools, corporations and private charters around the year.
The ferry is clean; the restrooms were very clean also. The snack bar runs 2 for 1 specials sometimes. The ferry staff is friendly and helpful. It runs on time. You can elect not to get off and stay onboard for the return trip.
