U.S. 13 heads northeast through Delaware County, Philadelphia and Bucks County in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The route enters the Keystone State through an industrial area along the Delaware River at the borough of Marcus Hook. The route concludes at U.S. 1 in Falls township just west of Morrisville.

Through Delaware County, U.S. 13 parallels Interstate 95 and the Delaware River northeast from Marcus Hook to Trainer, Chester and Eddystone. PennDOT successfully applied to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in November 2020 to realign U.S. 13 from Post Road, Highland Avenue and 9th Street through the city of Chester onto PA 291 from Price Street to Fourth Street along the Chester Waterfront. U.S. 13 shifts northward from PA 291 (4th Street) along Morton Avenue back to its original course. The former alignment was established as U.S. 13 Business.

U.S. 13 shifts sides with I-95 northeast to Ridley Park, Prospect Park and Darby to the Philadelphia city line. Within Philadelphia, U.S. 13 initially follows Baltimore Avenue from the Cobbs Creek neighborhood east to 38th Street at University City. U.S. 13 turns east onto Powelton Avenue to a couplet along 33rd/34th Streets north to Mantua.

U.S. 13 crosses the Schuylkill River along Girard Avenue east to 33rd Street and Ridge Avenue along the east side of Fairmount Park. Hunting Park Avenue leads U.S. 13 northeast to the Tioga and Nicetown communities and U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) at Hunting Park.

U.S. 1/13 overlap northeast to Frankford and Mayfair, where U.S. 13 shifts southeast along a one way couplet of Robbins and Levick Streets. U.S. 13 continues along Frankford Avenue to the Tacony, Holmesburg and Torresdale communities in Northeast Philadelphia.

Advancing into Bucks County, U.S. 13 again parallels Interstate 95 from Andalusia to Conrwells Heights and Bridgewater in Salem township. U.S. 13 diverges with the freeway east to the borough of Bristol, meeting I-95 one final time at the Delaware River Turnpike Toll Bridge. North from Tullytown, U.S. 13 upgrades onto a freeway to Fallsington and Morrisville in Falls township.

Approved by the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) on June 27, 1956. the northernmost stretch of U.S. 13 in Bucks County was relocated westward from Old Bristol Pike and Pennsylvania Avenue in Morrisville. The new route followed the limited access highway joining Tullytown and U.S. 1, and alongside U.S. 1 north to the New Jersey state line. The 1.27 mile long concurrency with U.S. 1 from Falls township northward to the state line was eliminated, when the AASHO approved an application by the Pennsylvania Department of Highways to do so on December 6, 1964.
