As we all know, the Haverbubble is easy enough to never escape. It has anything one would need to stay in on a Friday and Saturday night — pizza delivery to campus, with Wawa, Chipotle, and a copious amount of caffeine suppliers within walking distance. Who could ever imagine leaving Ardmore with such luxuries available?
Well someone imagined it, and they set up the lovely Haverticket subsidy program so that you, yes YOU, can leave campus and venture into Philly FOR FREE.

But what should you DO once you get to Philly? There are so many places to go! Waaaayyyyy too many people to see!!!
(Philly is not this large. There may not be this much to see in Philadelphia).
(Not what Philly actually looks like. People are not this happy to be walking in the street together. Plus also not this many people walk on the street at the same time because streets are definitely not this large).
Well don’t take that as a reason to stay in the Haverbubble!
(This is you bursting the Haverbubble).
Some places to see in Philly (which also includes people to see since there are people everywhere in Philly):
-Another mall located at 17th and Chestnut streets (approximately 4 blocks from Suburban Station). This mall has a few known shops, though a smaller food court.
-Located at 12th and Arch streets (approximately 6 blocks from Suburban Station). A cultural location with literally an abundance of delicious food. Schaf highly suggest the 12th Street Cantina, because they have literally the best guacamole in the history of existence. But everywhere in the market has A-M-A-Z-I-N-G food.
-University City Penn 6
-Located at 40th and Walnut Streets (approximately 2 blocks from 40th and Market Street station off of the blue line of SEPTA). A nice movie theater located on the edge of Penn’s campus. Then you can say you officially saw a movie in the city. Woot woot!
-Free Library of Philadelphia
-There are 53 locations with 3 regional libraries and 1 central library conveniently located at 19th and Vine Streets (approximately 8 blocks from Suburban Station). There’s a cafe, a LARGE quantity of books, plenty of free events, and the location places you squarely in center city with time to explore. Schaf highly recommends this place because it is a beautiful building, and they have books about potatoes and potatoes are great.
Go out! Explore! Get that free transportation to Philly! Woot woot!
