Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, and is home to many major historical monuments and landmarks. On this intimate walking tour, see most of Philadelphia’s essential sights, all while learning about the City of Brotherly Love’s history from your guide. In the company of a small group, see Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross, Franklin Court, and more, and wind down with a cold beverage in Old City.

My first time in Philadelphia so I had to see The Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House where the first US flag was sewn. All within walking distance to each other and interesting pieces of history.

It is necessary to see the Liberty Bell if you go to Philadelphia. We got there around 10:45 to wait in line and made it to the security check around 12 on a Saturday. They only let 20 in the building at a time. I thought it moved well. No one complained and once inside they have all kinds of information about the bell and interesting things. The bell is amazing to see in person if your a history buff.

What an incredible piece of History to see in person. We did go during mid-day on Saturday so the wait in line was about an hour and a half. It was also very neat to see Congress Hall and Independence Hall nearby while waiting. There was a few artifacts and lots to read when you enter the plaza.

So glad we went through the week, after all the reviews about long lines. We went right it and there were less than 20 people in the building. Some sites are still closed, but it was well worth the visit and the opportunity for my granddaughter to see the bell in person after reading about it in history class. Lots of interesting information and bell-themed mementos. An important piece of American History.
