Bensalem is a city in Pennsylvania.
Bensalem, Pennsylvania is a residential suburb conveniently located next to the bustling metropolis of Philadelphia. It connects to the city at it's northeastern point of the city. However, just because it's residential, don't assume that it's only houses and fast food chains. There are a few interesting gems nearby without even entering Philadelphia.
Bensalem is also a perfect place to stay if you want to avoid the hustle, bustle and high prices of the inner city. Buses and trains are available nearby, as well as an accessible car rental service.
Getting around Bensalem and Northeast Philadelphia is a bit more difficult than Center City: there are no subways or local train systems throughout Bensalem.
However, there is a SEPTA trainstation located at 700 Station Avenue, Cornwells Heights, Pennsylvania 19020; which is nearby to Bristol Pike in the Bensalem Township area.

The Trenton Line Regional Rail, the train which passes through Cornwell's Heights, takes you to all of the major stops in Philadelphia, within walking distance of many major attractions in the inner city. Taking the train is less stressful and cheaper than driving in the inner city.
For train rides and ticket costs, please refer to the SEPTA Regional Rail website.
