This "mall" is an outdoor area that is comprise of museums and historical landmarks. Great place to walk around. You could probably spend nearly an entire day here.

This is a well-kept historic area. There's lots of greenspace, and of course many historic sites and buildings. I highly recommend a visit. Even if you do nothing else in Philadelphia, visit these sites!

To walk around and see the places I've read about in history books is breath taking. I only wish I had more time to visit and will have to plan a return visit in the future. This place can get crowded so make your plans in advance.

This is where the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are located. Nice complex easy to walk. It getss crowded so try to go early and also beat the heat if during summer months. Philly can be hot. Enjoy several hours touring but plan to eat around the Mall area for some good local cuisine. Philly cheesesteaks are a must have!

The mall itself is great for shopping; as we did a lot. BUT, we have come back from NY to here many times just to get the cheese-steak in here. It is the best around and we have tried many there in Philly!

A must stop in seeing Philly. Flanked by independence Hall, The Constitution center, Liberty Bell, The American Museum of Jewish heritage. This is where it all began. Best to go first thing in morning before it gets crowded.Info booths in area will give you places and things to do for the rest of the day.

With grassy open areas, Independence Mall resembles the National Mall in Washington, DC—sans the Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool. Independence Mall is a 3-block section of Independence National Historical Park, and is due north of Independence Hall. It is bounded by Race, Chestnut, 5th, & 6th streets. This is FAR more than just an open meadow. From south to north,... More
