“One of Our Faves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Being from the Philadelphia area, one would think we'd get tired of this place. But it holds so much history, we have gone back several times, as children, as a couple, and now, with our son. There is so much to this place, and each time, we learn something new. It's a special experience to go during the Welcome America festival, which culminates with Independence Day each year!

“The Attraction is the Old City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

I'm not a fan of the legend of the Constitution, because it has been made obsolete by the daily desecration by politicians. However, the Old City is good for walking around, which I didn't have time when I studied in Philly.

“Fascinating piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I really enjoyed our tour and Ranger who was our tour guide. Even if you don't have tickets, try and get in. You don't need a ticket to go through security and look around. When they line up you can ask about empty seats and they usually form a line for those who don't have tickets or those who were late for their tours.
