"Police officer = tourist guide" Philadelphia Favorite Tip by Jozzzef

Philadelphia General: 149 reviews and 158 photos

Favorite thing: When we arrived at the Greyhound station I needed directions so I asked a police officer. He took of his backpack which was filed with brochures and maps. He helped us out perfectly and was very friendly. I don't know if I met one idealist police officer or if they all carry that backpack but if they do Philly must be the most welcoming city in the US!
