Most of us know the general story of this aspect of our countries' founding, but to see the displays and hear the story again where it happened from docents and Park Rangers is a must for each and every citizen.

A must visit if you are visiting Philly. Across the street from Independence Hall. Take a close up look at Americas symbol of Liberty. A great historical lesson on its construction and it's meaning. A real appreciation for what American is.

This nice area, dedicated to the fight of American’s for Independence, is the best introduction to USA history.It’s surrounded by a few historical buildings and a lot of relative museums, where the visitors can see, among other things, the Liberty Bell , the originals of the Declaration of Independence and Amendments of the USA Constitution.

Be sure to go during the day and take the time not only to see the Liberty Bell but the Original White House nearby as well as Christchurch Cemetery where Benjamin Franklin is interred. Be sure you and every person in your party bring a penny. Trust me on this one. Bring a penny and please place on Ben Franklin's... More

There is so much history in Philadelphia, visits can be overwhelming (and overwhelmingly boring for kids that might not have an idea of all that happened here). Arrive EARLY at the Visitor's center (we got there just before 11 on a weekday and they were almost out of tickets) so you can get your free tickets to Independence Mall and... More

This is good if there is a 10 minute or less review. There always seems to be a wait to get thru security but once your in, it's a 10-15 minute walk thru. Good for taking a picture of the kids next to the bell.
