Of course, the Liberty Bell is an absolute must see. It's one of those attractions that gives you goosebumps the moment you see it. There's usually a pretty long line just to get into the building so be prepared for that.

The Liberty Bell is in a building across the street from Independence Hall. Viewing it is free of charge. There is usually a long line of visitors but the line moves quickly. Take a photo standing in front of the bell.

Certainly nice to see, but very much underwhelming. Too many people crammed into a small place at the same time. Couldn't hear the guide, but security was very reassuring.

I loved this place. It was a very good place for my two young granddaughters. No classroom lesson could have taught them more about American History particularly how slavery played a role. It was so informative and interesting. It was well worth the visit. My...More
