Worth the effort of getting advance tickets. Part guided by a tour guide and part on your own. We found it intersting

Not much to say. If you are in Philly, you must stop here. This is one of the most important landmarks in US history. If you don't have much time at least take a walk in the park and see the buildings from outside

YOu have to go through a security line, which didn't take long. The building is surrounded by information and the history of the bell. Very cool to see!

The 30th Street Station is at least 20 blocks from the historic district and would be a long walk. You can take the SEPTA train from the Amtrak 30th street station using the Market/Frankfort line. There are several stops... More
