Getting Around Conference Sites
Public transportation to/from the airport
Septa - Airport line
$6 each way. The train stops directly at the airport. Use the machine to buy your ticket before you board!! There's a surcharge if you pay on the train.
Restaurants and other food options
An excellent place just across the street from the conference center. You can buy groceries or a meal. It has Amish foods and various other kinds of food. Some of my favorite vendors are: Famous 4th Street Cookie Company, Nanee's Kitchen (Indian), Iovine's produce.
It has free wireless, but it is ALWAYS crowded!
