My friend, you can't put into words what it's like to sit in Wachovia, to mingle, to be handed a beer by a stranger and to be thanked for making the trip down and for being a Canuck. It'll never leave you, I promise.
You have parts that are as safe as any areas in any major city. Then you have neighborhoods that looked like they've been hit by bombs.
Stay out of the neighborhoods that look like they've been hit by bombs, and you will have NO problem.
As a tourist, you would never have any reason whatsoever to venture anywhere near any of those areas anyway. Center City is a playground for young professionals. The sport complex is self-contained and completely safe, unless you are wearing a Crosby jersey.
Your car will be fine, too. We don't burn things or loot stores when we win stuff. It's just one big happy drunk party.
