Travel & Lodging

Philadelphia, PA is easily accessible by the Northeast Corridor Amtrak line. It also has a large international airport.

Here you will find a list of local hotels at a variety of price points. NEDA does not have a hotel block or reserved rooms at any of these, so we encourage you to choose the best option for you. Air B&B is also an option that has lower cost accomodations in residences in the Philadelphia area.
