Loved walking through the park and taking in all the history not just of Philadelphia but of our nation. This is conveniently located near the major sites: Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin's Gravesite, Independence Hall, U.S. Mint, and so much more. Make it your first stop when you visit Philadelphia.

The mall is a wonderful expansive outdoor venue. We enjoyed it as we were taking in the museum and the sight of the Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell.

Considering the Historical value of the site, I was disappointed that there were few things to see. The mall was plain and small. Other than the Liberty Bell, which is now encased from the public, there is nothing visual to see. They founding fathers would have wanted a better memorial.

I recently spent a week in Philadelphia. I walked the Independence Mall and surrounding are over three of those days. This is an important legacy for all Americans. The mall highlights Independence Hall but also allows visitors to appreciate a number of other historical attractions.

Great place to walk around, sit and enjoy the historical view. Surrounded by the Independence Hall and the Historic Liberty Bell. People watching is optional.

A great place to picnic! We bought a Philly cheesesteak from a street vendor and ate in the park. It was a beautiful day! You could sit in the sun or in the shade and enjoy the beautiful Independence hall architecture.
