We arrived at 1:30, because we visited the Philadelphia Zoo first. We parked in the parking deck for the exhibit and circled the entire deck three times before we got lucky enough to follow an exiting visitor to her spot. Allow ample time for parking, or research another spot!
I parked in the underground Lot they have and it was $20 for like 3 hours its crazy high. But they are doing construction on the roads around it so they cut down on street parking. plus it meter parking so bring quarters.
The Food here is expensive but you can pack a lunch if you like to save money.
You can bring a bottle of water.
Even if you park blocks away, you only save $2
Their restaurant has varied foods. The waitstaff were very helpful. It is a cafeteria set up.
