Since 2015, GoPhillyGo has been the best way to get car free multimodal directions in the Philadelphia region. Now, the new “Tours” section available on GoPhillyGo lets you navigate between three or more destinations that are close in proximity or share a common theme.
For example, when you plan a trip to Wissahickon Valley Park, use the premade tour to navigate from the Toleration Statue to the Fingerspan Bridge, then to the Valley Green Inn for a bite to eat along the creek. You can also use tours to find gateways and trailheads for regional greenways like the Schuylkill River Trail, Cobbs Creek Trail, and Tacony Creek Trail.
If you’re planning a trip to Old City to see historic sites like the National Constitution Center and Independence National Park, use the “Philly’s Historic District” tour to get walking directions between these destinations and more! Pre-planned itineraries can help you decide where to go. Follow the links below for some of our favorites, and check back often for new tours.
Transportation is the number one source of air pollution, and most of that pollution comes from cars. Every time you walk, bike, or take public transportation, you directly help lower pollution.
