I hope Pope Francis likes Cheesesteaks!##@!

...because he’s coming to town on the 27th and 28th, and all of Philly and the ‘burbs are throwing down the welcome mat for the Pontiff and 2 million of his ardent followers – about 8,000 of whom will be staying at our house. (Or rather, at our hotels!)

Philly and the surrounding areas are going to be a madhouse from September 22nd's kick off of the World Meeting of Families, through the Pope's visit.  But lucky for us, this is the 4th largest Media Market in the country and our TV stations will be reporting on every aspect of the event from traffic jams to schedule changes. Download one of the following free apps for up-to-the-minute coverage that will have you navigating the happy mayhem with all the skill and savvy of a local:

Not venturing into the city? 
You can still rub shoulders with Pope Francis at our Visitors Bureau in Media.

Take a selfie or give us your cell phone (like Marty did!)and we’ll take a picture of you with our somewhat ‘board’ likeness of the Pontiff.  While you’re here, browse through hundreds of brochures and flyers on fun things to see and do all over Delaware County.

Local residents, Papal Pilgrims and regular vacationers are all urged to check the two web sites below on a regular basis, for any public transportation updates or late-breaking Papal visit news that could impact your travel in and around the area.   NOTE: Those looking for the official PAPAL VISIT HANDBOOK will find a link to it on the World Meeting of Families site.
