Holy Smokes, I can’t believe that the #ASE13 conference is already here! As a transplant to Philadelphia I certainly don’t know everything about this city, but I thought it would be helpful to share some tips and insights on the city! If you have any questions about the conference I’ve include a few of the really helpful pages.

Introduction To Philadelphia
Restaurants & Bars
Where to run for coffee – I am a morning person, but if you need a good cup of joe to start your morning check out this list of coffee shops here in Philadelphia.
List of the coolest bars & restaurants in Philadelphia – One of my favorite things about Philly is all the amazing places to eat and check out. If you are looking for places around the conference start at #10 on the list.
List of cool views in Philadelphia – It is a beautiful time of year here in Philadelphia and a lot of restaurants have great patios, gardens, and views to take in the city.
Choose Your Cheesesteak
Top 10 spots for a Philadelphia Cheesesteak – Last but not least you have to choose where you want to get a Philly Cheesesteak. You can try and do the Triple Bypass, which is when you eat 3 cheesesteaks in a day, but as someone who has done the triple bypass I wouldn’t recommend it. I would suggest eating at Jim on South street or Tony Lukes.
Transportation Around Philadelphia
Once you are at the ASE conference you are walking distance from most things Philly has to offer.
Taxi Cabs – If you need to travel around I suggest using a cab. Especially since ASE and 50onRed have teamed up to offer all new Uber users a FREE Uber ride up to $20 in Philadelphia using the sign-up promotional code 50onRedASE (Expires 08/1/2014. New Riders Only.)
SEPTA – If you want to get a pass to all of the Philadelphia public transportation feel free to sign up for a $12 an individual all day pass. The pass will give you access to the following types of transportation.
- Regional Rail
- Mann Center Summer Bus Service
Tour Buses If you want to get a guided tour while traveling around town you can get a tour bus ticket for $13. Just go to Groupon and grab a tour from Philadelphia Sightseeing tours OR Trolley Works tour.
