“A melting pot of America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a great place to observe the crowds of visitors from all over the world. Take a break on one of the benches under the shade and relax. Public restrooms are clean here also.

“Well organised and friendly historic sites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Obviously this a small but highly important park with its historic connection to birth of America. As we were visiting over the July 4th week the park had a number of special events and activities including re-enactors from the colonial period. It is well managed by the national park staff given the high volume of visitors.

“So much to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

There is so much to see and everything is so close. Besides the constitution, liberty bell, etc. - there are incredible architectural details in the surrounding buildings. Just walk through them and you'll be amazed at what you might find!
