The rangers here are so wonderful, and the site is so beautifully kept. It’s absolutely one of the best historic sites in Philadelphia. Unless you’re going during the January/February slow season, you’ll need to book online and pick up your tickets at the tourist center...More

Its a long walk. Subway or Uber is a better option. Parking near the Terminal Market is tight. At Terminal Market try the Bassetts Ice Cream-oldest ice cream stand in America and its really good.
