I am a history buff and I find this all amazing, but even my math teacher husband loved it. He waited on the line for the Liberty Bell about 10 minutes before it opened. I ran over to the Visitor Center and got timed entry tickets to Independence Hall. The Liberty Bell was fun to see and learn about. We... More

The whole complex of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell makes one proud to be an American, especially when one realizes the founders were putting their own lives and property on the line in order to effect an independent nation.

We went to Independence Hall late in the day and waited about 30 minutes to take the free tour. The park rangers are very polite and informative. It was amazing to stand in the rooms where the fight for independence started. A must see if you are in Philadlephia.

We rolled into town at about 5 pm. We stayed at the hotel Monaco just across the street from Independence Park. The hotel had free wine from 5 to 6. We walked over to the Liberty Bell at about 6:20 on a Friday and we had no wait. We read most of the exhibit information and then checked out the... More

Lovely park located in the heart of Philly and probably the only green space for miles! Great tours filled with America's history.
