What's the surrounding area like?

The Wells Fargo arena is situated quite some distance away from downtown Philadelphia, but with the AT&T stop of the Broad Street Line subway right outside.

There are a few bars and places to eat in the Xfinity Live complex which is in the same parking lot as the Wells Fargo arena.

How can I spend a day in Philadelphia before heading to the event?

If you choose to spend the day in Philadelphia before the game or concert, you will not be short of things to do and see in this impressive city.

Independence Hall

Visit where the United States was born. This is the building where the Founding Fathers debated, and where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were produced. The Hall is located within Independence National Historical Park, where you can also find the famous Liberty Bell. Entry to Independence Hall is free of charge if you visit in the morning, at which point you will receive a timed entry ticket. Otherwise you can reserve in advance.

Eastern State Penitentiary

The Eastern State Penitentiary, or ESP, is considered the world's first true penitentiary. It is now a museum and is an incredible experience for visitors. The prison offers daytime tours and an evening "Terror Behind the Walls" haunted house experience that will definitely make your hair stand on end.

Rittenhouse Square

If you want to satisfy your urge to shop, Rittenhouse Square is the place to go, ideally located in the heart of downtown Philly. You can easily spend the day scouring new shops and unique boutiques as well as the usual favorites. There is also a good selection of eateries here so you really don't need to go anywhere else for a complete day out.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near Wells Fargo Center?

Xfinity Live

Acrossthe parking lot from the arena is the Xfinity Live complex where you can find a good selection of bars and places to eat. The NBC sports arena has a 32-foot screen where you can really soak up the sports atmosphere while you grab a few drinks and something to eat from their full menu. The Victory Beer Hall has a huge range of beers to explore if you feel like a pre-game drink.

Chickie's and Pete's

The flagship Chickie's and Pete's crab house is a short journey from the arena and the perfect place to try some great seafood including their signature crab dishes. It also serves as a sports bar, so it's a great warmup for the big game.

Tony Luke's

It's an unofficial law - you can't go to Philadelphia and not have a Philly cheesesteak. Tony Luke's serves up some of the best cheesesteaks in the city. Every sandwich is made to order and served on bread that is baked in-store. You may need your own transportation to get here but it is well worth the journey before or after the match.

Is there anything else I should know?

Philadelphia is thought to be the most haunted city in the whole of the United States, so you may want to check under your hotel bed before you go to sleep.

If you like to jog, you might want to don a grey tracksuit and take a run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art with your best Sylvester Stallone impression, as those are the very steps featured in the now-legendary Rockymontage.

What's the best way to get to the Wells Fargo Center?

The Wells Fargo Center is easily accessible by car and by public transportation.

If you're driving from Maryland, Delaware or Chester, take the I-95 north until you see the Center on your right. From Northeast Philadelphia you'll also need to get on the I-95, heading south.

The best way to get to the Center using public transportation is on the Broad Street Line subway. The Center is located at the AT&T station, which is the last stop on the southbound line.

If you're traveling in from the airport, you'll need to take the regional train into downtown Philadelphia to change for the subway. The fare is about $6.50 from the airport to the Philadelphia city center if you pay before boarding the train.

If you're staying at one of the hotels near the Wells Fargo Center, you could even walk to the game.

How much are drinks/food in the Wells Fargo Center?

There are a range of restaurants and concessions within the Wells Fargo Center as with any sporting arena. You can make a reservation at the Cadillac Grille if you want a sit down dining experience before the game or before a special event. A steak will set you back around $50 but if that's not your bag, you could try their signature Quinoa Cauliflower cake.

If you want the real experience at a Flyers or a Sixers game you should try and grab a bite to eat at one of the many concession stands found around the arena. There is huge variety here. If you don't get a chance beforehand, you can grab a Philly cheesesteak for around $10 during the game. Otherwise try Chickie's & Pete's crab fries for something a little different.

Wash it down with a large soda for $7.50 or a beer from $8.

Does the venue have WiFi?

Yes, there is free WiFi within the Wells Fargo Center.

Is there any parking?

There is ample parking at the center with over 6,000 spaces.

How much does parking cost?

Parking on site is around $16.

What time do the doors normally open?

Gates open one hour before game time for Flyers and Sixers games.

Any other important information visitors should know?

Make sure you don't attempt to bring a bag bigger than the permitted dimensions of 14"x14"x6", otherwise you won't be allowed in. Selfie sticks are not permitted inside, nor are professional cameras or those with detachable lenses. If you are a budding photographer, it's best to leave the expensive equipment at home.

Needs to be a way to alert security to people smoking (someone around us was smoking pot...) or otherwise being disruptive. Maybe a text number or something.

Liked: Great sound!
Disliked: Lack of direction for traffic leaving the area.

Heard lots of rumors about how brutal Flyers' fans can be and not to wear an away team's jersey there. This was not the case. There was plenty of friendly harrasment, but that was it. Great time.

Liked: Great atmosphere; friendly people sitting around us.
Disliked: Too many Flyers fans.

Enjoyed the show and pre-show activities at the AT&T Pavillion at Wells Fargo Center. Good crowd and no technical mishaps. Everything was great until it took us 2 HOURS to leave the parking lot after the show! Tons of people directing traffic on the way in but nobody directing traffic after the show.

Liked: Good Show and Drinks/Food
Disliked: Traffic!

This was absolutly the BEST concert I have ever attended! But besides seeing the greatest group (NKOTB/Back Street Boys) in the world, I was really impressed with the parking and how quickly things went when the concert let out. I have been to venues a lot smaller and have had to wait hours longer to get out. I would definitely go back!!
