We booked a vacation to Philly only to arrive during Trump's shutdown. Nevertheless, it was really cool to see the Liberty Bell at a distance. Hopefully it opens and we can get back to normal soon.

The Liberty Bell is one of those iconic sites that one must see to complete a trip to Philadelphia. Unfortunately we went when the government shutdown was in progress, so the facility was closed. But we could still see the Bell easily through the window,...More

Liberty Bell Center is a most noteworthy attraction. This is the bell that symbolizes our Nation and is recognized almost throughout the world. Read the plaques and information about our nation's symbol of freedom. But this is only 1/2 of the history; be sure to...More

A must see when in Philadelphia! Exciting to see what we’ve all learned about in American History class! Check ahead online or call for hours. We were lucky it was open today. Has been closed due to government shutdown. Admission was free.

It is really easy to find your way through the historic Philadelphia area. Trail signs mark where to go. We rode the Rail line (SEPTA) from the airport, then walked all over downtown. The Liberty Bell Center is easily accessible. We walked the trail and...More

Liberty Bell is free and doesn't require a ticket or reservation. Just go whenever you choose. Just remember certain times will be busier than others. We went Saturday late afternoon and it was packed.

Thoughts/Input on itinerary? (10 Replies)
My husband and I are bringing our 2 kids (ages 7 &amp; 8) to Philly this summer for a week (Sat - Sat). Was looking for input on this itinerary from locals/experts, thanks! We live about 3 hours away so we plan to get in Saturday afternoon. Also, we'd love any suggestions on kid friendly restaurants with good customer service, one of the kids has multiple severe food allergies so being able to line up a few places to eat that are willing to work with his needs would be really nice. ...More

All very good except the kids are much too old for Please Touch. One good kid friendly restarant is Pietro's on the 1700 block of Walnut Street. Large menu. May or may not be convenient depending on where you are staying.

doable? (6 Replies)
Hi, can we do these activities in one day? Also, I believe they are all very close to one another: Independence hall, Independence national historic park,Independence visitor center, Liberty bell center , constitution center , Betsy Ross house. Is there an order we should see these sites in to make it more interesting. We have a 9 and 11 year old. Thanks guys.

Easily done in one day, though you need advance tickets for Independence Hall. When will you be here?
