Independence Historical Park was a great afternoon visit. There is a large green park space behind Independence Hall to visit and relax. Tickets are needed to go into Independence Hall. Worth checking out, especially if you can't get tickets to go in Independence Hall

It is great to read all the information as you wait to get near the liberty bell. It is busy so don't think you will get your picture taken without others in the shot.

The US Forest Service manages all the historical buildings in the city center. The Liberty Bell is here, along with the Independence Hall. Register for a tour on line at the Forest service website to be sure to get in to see everything.

I'd recommend arriving early if you want to see everything the park has to offer, I wish I had more time as I could have used all day!

Philly makes it easy to visit the historical sights where the nation was begun. There is a large parking garage underneath the site (pay) that connects you directly to the visitor's center where you can get tickets and information. If you are wanting to visit...More

No, you will need to park and do yourself a favor: take another form of transport to get to that downtown area.
