Philadelphia is truly a great city to go visit. Temple University is one of the most outstanding colleges out there my opinion, the people are great. I will definitely recommend you visit downtown nearby stadium, it is beautiful. "German town" is one of the most popular places to go when you want to shop. It's fabulous just taking the trolley around the entire city definitely something you would love to experience.

When to Visit Philadelphia, PA

Since summer is the most popular time to visit Philadelphia, it's also the most expensive. The months between June and August bring average daily temperatures in the 70s and 80s and very pleasant weather. However, the combination of summer vacation time and nice weather brings plenty of visitors to the city, and hotels raise room rates to take advantage of the crowds.

While September starts out warm, temperatures quickly drop into the 50s. Of course, a drop in temperature also means a drop in the number of tourists, so hotels will decrease rates to entice people to visit. The months between October and February are by far the cheapest time to visit Philadelphia. However, with frigid temperatures that range in the mid-20s, you'll definitely need to pack warm clothes to tour all the attractions in the city.

The months between March and May are some of the best times to visit Philadelphia. While temperatures range between the brisk mid-30s and mid-50s in March, they climb to comfortable 70s in May. Since summer tourist season hasn't started yet, you can find some very reasonable hotel rates in the city. Plus, although you might tour area attractions with children on field trips, these crowds are nothing compared to the number of tourists who visit during the summer.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Philadelphia, PA:
