Going to Trenton ?
As a public service message this morning, if you're heading to Trenton to watch practices Saturday or games Sunday, here's a few tips.
The Sovereign Bank Arena has its own web site at sovereignbankarena.com with directions, etc.
From my own knowledge, if you're coming down from the North on Amtrak or New Jersey transit or from the south on Amtrak (why would you ??) or SEPTA, you can catch a cheap cab, which you should, for a five-minute ride to the arena.
If you're only interested in Temple or other teams in the afternoon twin bill and you're coming from Philadelphia or environs, you can catch the River Link on the Jersey side in Camden or connect via PATCO and then spend the $1 or whatever and go directly to a stop a block from the arena before the train terminates at the Amtrak train station. I say this because the line doesn't run at nights after 9 p.m.
There's several good restaurants in the Chambersburg area, especially of the Italian variety.
The Sovereign web site has specific driving directions, but on the short, I would say if you're heading up Route 1, cross the Delaware, take the train station exit, make a right off the ramp, go over the railroad, and instead of making a left to the back of the station, go straight one block to Hamilton (there will be arena signs), make a right on Hamilton and the arena will appear two blocks later on your left across Route 129.
If you're coming from New Jersey, go up I-295, swing over to I-195/Route 129 north and head straight into Trenton and the arena will be on your left. You turn left on Hamilton Ave. and you'll see the parking lots.
