On the 4th of July, you don't need to wait at the visitor center to get tickets - you can go and just line up! This tour was absolutely fun and reverant at the same time.
Kudos to the National Park Rangers. They tell the history and the stories of the buildings and the people and the Founding Fathers with heart and humor. It is not just a bunch of recited facts. That is what made this the better of any of the tours in Philadelphia that I have been on.
Rooms aren't air conditioned, so be warned. There is walking as well, so be prepared. But to interact with the rangers and hear their take on our American history is invaluable.
