For the Holidays, the Philly PHLASH—a bus that typically takes riders to iconic Philadelphia landmarks—takes a festive detour. Dubbed the “Grimm Nightmare Before Christmas,” this tour sidesteps museums and government buildings, instead taking passengers to the best local bars for eggnog, drinking games, and yuletide history. The latter is provided by expert guides, well-versed in the origins of Christmas and Philadelphia’s raucous past.

PHLASH runs daily from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. from November 27 to January 3. PHLASH will not run on New Year’s Day. The PHLASH Passes can be used on a separate day from when the tickets for Grimm Nightmare Before Christmas are used.

Grimm Nightmare Before Christmas from November 27th to January 27th.


The purple Philly PHLASH bus dedicates its entire 22-stop route to Philadelphia's historical and cultural landmarks. Based in Center City, the bus whisks passengers to interactive fun at the Please Touch Museum or tours of Eastern State Penitentiary, where Al Capone was once incarcerated. Other destinations include the National Museum of Jewish History, Penn’s Landing, Independence Visitor Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Philadelphia Zoo.
