Across the street from Roosevelt Park in the heart of Philadelphia is where the Wells Fargo Center sits. Formerly known as Wachovia Center, Wells Fargo Center plays host to one of the top teams in the NHL's Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia Flyers. With their take-no-prisoners style of play and ability to score a goal at any minute, exciting hockey can always be found at Wells Fargo Center. Fans of the Flyers are like none other in the National Hockey League, and you will be enthralled with how much passion and camaraderie they exude while cheering on their hometown Flyers.

Getting to the arena is not very difficult at all, with easy access from the New Jersey Turnpike and the Pennsylvania Turnpike both. Simply following signs to get to Broad Street will put you right in front of the Wells Fargo Center and get you where you need to be to enjoy Flyers hockey. You can also bring your car up I-95 and take the Broad St. exit, as this also provides a simple way to arrive at the building. The SEPTA Subway and Regional Rail are also available for you to utilize in case public transportation provides an easier way for you to reach your destination. Taking the rail to AT&T Station, or Pattison Avenue, will virtually put you right at Wells Fargo Center so you just have to walk inside to enjoy the action.

Speaking of the indoor atmosphere, Wells Fargo Center has one of the nicest concourse sections in the entire NHL. The atrium on Broad Street offers up some great entertainment along with a huge jumbotron featuring videos of the Philadelphia Flyers in all their glory. Finally, there are the outstanding sculptures depicting famous athletes that call Wells Fargo Center home. With two different levels of seating, the arena makes it very easy for you to follow the on-ice action no matter where you are located within the seating bowl. With plenty of LED out-of-town scoreboards and the magnificent high definition video scoreboard hanging over the ice, you will be amazed at the technology that Wells Fargo Center puts on display.

The concession stands are absolutely amazing at Wells Fargo Center, and they make it easy and affordable to indulge in your favorite stadium food before you sit down to watch the game. Philly Cheese Steaks are aplenty throughout the arena, as these Philadelphia favorites are a staple of any good pre-game meal. If you are looking for a little less chaotic scene, you are invited to take in the atmosphere of P.J. Whelihan's, which is a fun and friendly pub located inside Wells Fargo Center. There are also delicious meals to be had at the Cadillac Grille and the Lexus Club, though you do have to obtain private membership to the clubs before you are able to dine there.

McFadden's Ballpark is the perfect place to go for either a pre-game or post-game meal. Serving traditional south Philadelphia American fare, McFadden's is a great place to get some of the best food and drink that you will be able to find in the entire city, including Philadelphia's world famous cheesesteaks. If you want some good old-fashioned barbecue, look no further than Bull's BBQ, which is located very close to Wells Fargo Center. They have all of your favorite barbecue dishes with many different sauces to choose from.

Also, don't forget to stop by Pat's King of Steaks and Geno's Steaks, located directly across the street from one another, to put in your vote as to who makes the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. There is a well-known debate going on between these two restaurants as to who makes the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. The cheesesteak has taken on a life of its own in Philadelphia, and many establishments have opened strictly to serve their own take on the Philly cheesesteak.

Willow Street is home to one of the hippest, most dynamic night clubs in the Philadelphia area. Shampoo is the perfect end-of-the-evening hot spot to attend after you're done cheering on the Flyers. With great dancing and a friendly crowd to socialize with, Shampoo should be at the top of your list for clubs to attend. Voyeur Nightclub on St. James Street is another trendy night spot that you don't want to miss out on. With personal bottle service and upbeat music, you will undoubtedly be dancing the night away without wanting to stop. Both Shampoo and Voyeur have minimal cover charges, so you don't have to be concerned about the cost to get in.

There are so many points of interest in Philadelphia that you could choose to see that it is difficult to know where to start. One attraction that you most assuredly don't want to miss is the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art. You will immediately recognize the front of the building as being the steps that Rocky Balboa climbed while he was training during the classic "Rocky" movies of the '80's. The Liberty Bell is another location that offers visitors awe-inspiring moments that they will never forget. You can find Independence Hall also in the direct vicinity, which puts you right in the middle of America's storied history.

Wells Fargo Center stands as a testament to the many years of sports history that the Philadelphia Flyers have provided the city. With a great atmosphere and some of the most passionate fans in the league, a trip to south Philadelphia's sports mecca is all you need to enjoy one of the great sports cities in the entire United States.
