Our wait in line to see the Bell wasn't that long. The Liberty Bell has its own guard. The history of it was interesting and it is magnificent. They do check bags before you enter as with Independence Hall.

Filmed overview of the high-spots. Book a Segway tour of Old City -- well worth the time and money. This was my first Segway ride, and I really enjoyed it: our guide was great, and the preliminary instruction on riding got everybody moving confidently.

A very informative tour and very much well worth doing. Rather than me tell you about it, just go. Even better when it costs nothing.

Learned about the Declaration of Independence and the constitution. The tour starts with you in 1 room sitting for a 5-7 minute background and then you get into 2 other rooms. After that you can see an early version of the Dec of Independence and Constitution. It's a national park and requires free tickets for the tour. You can reserve... More

Nothing like Philadelphia and this park symbolizes the founding of the US. You are in the are near South Philly as well with all kinds of food delights all close by. A few blocks from here is where Rocky ran the streets while training in the movie. You can't go wrong visiting Philly! the Doctor

Accessible for a great sense of history and culture even though we went after hours. Walking this free historical park gave a real sense of what our country was like at its founding. Green belts, explanatory signage, a walk through time.

I love the feeling of importance and weight you can sense here, you know heavy things went down here. The park has a bunch to see, from the Liberty Bell to Independence Hall. A well maintained park. Come here and get your history on.

I liked it. Time well spent. Free admission with a quick guided tour of the inside of the hall. See the Chair Washington used during the Constitutional Convention as well as the ink well used at the signing of the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution. Lincoln's body also lay in state here in the same room in 1865. Check... More
