Loving America

All the park guides were so knowledgeable about our history but I wish more was said about our founding father's faith

If you are driving, there are several parking garages on side streets for your use. There is also parking on the street. Make your first trip to the Visitor Center where you can get information about all of the sites to visit. Everything is located in this one area that you will want to see. There are a few restaurants... More

The park itself has more than 10 sites you can visit. Due to time, we wanted to see Independence Hall which is where the Declaration of Independence was signed. You can get tickets in advance which we did the night before on the National Parks website. You do not need to print them out. All tickets must be purchased at... More

No visit to Philly is complete without visiting here. The park is spread out, but everything is convenient. Don't miss Independence Hall, Liberty Hall and the Liberty Bell and Congress Hall. Plan for a few hours minimum to take it all in.

We were able to go into everything except Independence Hall due to not having tickets. We were only able to see the outside of it. The Liberty Bell itself had a long line, but it moved pretty fast. The building that formerly housed the Senate and House, Congress Hall, required no tickets and had constant tours (right next door to... More

The INHP is sort of like the National Mall in Washington D.C., and it incorporates many of the major historical sites Philly, including the Constitution Center, Liberty Bell, Carpenters Hall, Independence Hall, Ben Franklin's Grave, and a few other places. It is nicely landscaped and a pleasure to walk through. Go to the INHP Visitor Center to get your timed... More

This park is comprised of many buildings. Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and others. Great place to spend at least a half a day. Could easily spend a whole day here. Start at the visitors center and talk to the park rangers.
