I was in town with a friend Colleen..while she attended a league of women voters meeting I walked around the mall area. The new Jewish museum is up and running the constitution center was busy and the liberty bell And Independence Hall all doing tours. On a great sunny day. A great place to be for history buffs.

The mall area is really just a grassy area in between city streets and historic buildings. It's a nice place to let your kids run around after you've taken them thru the old buildings and history tours. If you packed a lunch it's the perfect spot to sit a eat and take in everything around you.

The Mall is just the area between the National Constitution center and Independence Hall. There is a lot of space if you'd like to have a picnic. It's also near Benjamin Franklin's grave.

This is the most historical place in America. It is where the USA began and has non-stop interest points as far as the eye can see. From Independence Hall to the liberty bell, this area is the beating heart of American history.

This mall is the 3 block area between Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center. The Liberty Bell Center can be found in this area, as well as the US Mint a short walk away, and Ben Franklin's grave site. This was a good area to stop, relax, get pictures of the structures in the background, and kind of drink... More

When you leave Independence Hall and head north towards the Liberty Bell Center, you have entered block one of the Independence Mall. In this area is the Liberty Bell Center where you view the bell, a large grassy area with a few benches to sit on and restrooms. North of that is block two which is where the Independence Visitor's... More

Take a break from the attractions and stretch out on the long grass lawn. Take some pictures and just relax. Then go back to the hustle and bustle and the lines. The NPS does a great job with all the sites. Truly a great way to spend a day.

We had a great time. The Park Rangers did a great job. We had to cut the trip short because it started raining cats and dogs.. I will return to finish the trip...

This is a great place to start and orient yourself with the city. This is where we picked up the Duck tour which was a great way to orient ourselves I may add. Figure spending an hour or so in line for the Liberty Bell (security clearance...free to enter to see bell and take a picture of course and a... More

Not much to say but this area continues to revitalize and appreciate the treasures. The open space between Independence Hall and the National Constituion Center is a great place to just relax during the warm months. During the July 4th week, enjoy the oudoor concert with the Philly Pops. There are so many structures with major historical significance within one... More
