This is where you go for any information on the downtown Philadelphia area. The people we associated with were very friendly and helpful. There are also very nice bathrooms and a big gift shop here. There is parking right below the center.

You should stop by before doing any of the tourist attractions. They have tickets for purchase there, transportation, clean rest rooms, activities, statue of Rocky and Ben Franklin, photo op, entertainment, and more. Conveniently, there is parking underground.

This place is really good as you can see and read about the history of the independence. There is a nice and handy gift shop as well as some seating areas to rest.
