Thanks Capt MJ. If it's a raw day it could be DW first and last Army Navy game but we will have the necessary clothing to enjoy.
And if you are staying in Center City, take the train to the game, with stops at the station near the various stadiums and arenas. The City lays on special trains. Easy-peasy from hotels in the city. Any hotel desk staff, concierge or bell staff can explain the system. It’s fun to be packed on the train with mids, cadets, families and fans. Broad St. Line subway. Just follow the crowd.
We take Amtrak from BWI Airport Station, the Northeast Regional, to the 30th St. Station in Center City Philly, walk or Uber to nearby hotel.
Good info here:
You can also take a SEPTA train from PHL airport to Center City, skip renting a car and paying daily hotel parking rates. Plenty of great restaurants to walk to in Center City, as well as Reading Terminal Market.
We usually go up Friday to arrive mid-morning, head to the Market for our first cheesesteak or Italian beef sandwich or hot pretzel (DH is a Philly native who attended St. Peter’s and Germantown Friends Schools there) of the weekend. Hit the pep rally, have a nice dinner, go to the boxing smoker if it’s on, meet up with friends for drinks. Walk everywhere, even in the cold, part of the fun.
Our favorite rendezvous for post-game meet-up with friends (not where mids go, of course) - the bar at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Great upscale bar food. Amazing old building, a former bank, with soaring ceilings.
I am in the mood for Army-Navy!
