Driving in Philly

Will be in Philly one day. Is driving over there crazy? We will be renting a car by the Amtrak station.

1. When to avoid traffics? We will be going to Independence visitor center, bell, love park and outside the museum of arts.

2. We will be going to Atlantic city next day, is the traffic bad as well? Are there tolls and whether we pay in advance or pay at the toll booth?

The only way you might get a hotel in the Philadelphia area for less than $100 a night would be to bid on Priceline or find a blind deal on Priceline or Hotwire. Whether it's possible even on those sites depends on your exact dates.

Are there decent hotels in New Orleans that offer rooms for $50 per night?

Prices are quite variable and largely dependent on dates.

Confusing, not really, although the interchange at the Ben Franklin can be a bit rough if you go that way.

Congested depends on time of day, but yes it can be very congested.

It is confusing leaving from 30th street station, and usually congested in that area.

At what time will the traffic slow down from Amtrak station to Atlantic City? 8pm? 9pm?

Unless it is a summer Friday night, 800 pm should be fine.
