605 reviews
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.

A nice spot for Philly and National Park service info. There’s a gift shop, restrooms, and cafe. The gift shop has the pressed pennies for anyone that collects them.

Great for information, bathroom break, snacks, and gift shop. It is centered around so many historical attractions such as Independence Hall, Congress Hall, George Washington's house remains, and so much more.

I was very limited in my knowledge of the area. My first visit and on foot (Actually a power *old person* scooter). I had been looking around for gifts for my family and Independence Hall had the best I could find AND was ACCESSIBLE. Much of area was kept in it's original condition, as it should have been. Not many ramps were built back in the day. It was great having a cute, clean store to purchase gifts for everyone.

You will find a lot of helpful hints and advices from the staff here. There are exhibitions by the Park Services, tours, and maps. The best part is the clean and nice bathroom. There is a cafe but closed due to COVID-19. After walking, seeing, and standing in lines, come here to take a break and enjoying the nice modern architectures.
