Road trip to Philly for 4th of July weekend OR Go to the Meadowlands Carnival

Many of you have been asking what we're doing for the 4th of July holiday.  So, just wanted to get of show of hands to find out who would be interested taking a road trip to Philly for an overnight stay or hanging out in Jersey at the Meadowlands Carnival. 

The City of Brotherly Love will be filled with numerous 4th of July activities.  We can stay at a hotel in a town adjacent to Philly due to cost and occupancy rate.  Please let me know your preference.

Thanks!

    Hi guys, unfortunately, I'm not going to the Philly trip because a friend reminded me of pre-set plans made tomorrow. I haven't seen her in over one year and it wouldn't feel right to cancel being she's coming out of town.

      Ok, here's the deal. We can stay at the Holiday Inn at 1305 Walnut Street in Philly for $153.51 per room. There are 2 double beds and a pull out couch in each room. In terms of travel; we can car pool. How many people are willing to drive? I can fit 5 people in my car. We can leave from Newark Penn Station at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday. Go directly to the hotel to drop off our bags and hit the city! Please let me know your thoughts!

    Well, looks we are going to Philly! The carnival stays around shortly after the 4th (I believe). Maybe we can schedule a meetup when we get back. Lets car pool. We can take two cars; I'd be willing to drive.
    I will look into lodging tomorrow.
