With all the tourists who flock to Independence National Park, how few of them visit, or are even aware of this park that is less than 50' from Independence Mall?
The park itself is pleasant and fairly quiet. Usually the site of a tomb of the unknown(s) gets more respect and visitation. The Tomb of the Unknown (Revolutionary War) Soldier is very a worthwhile stop. It is an attractive monument with an eternal flame, commemorating the 2,000+ unknown soldiers and POWs buried in mass pits beneath the park. It gives you something very important to reflect on, in an environment conducive to reflection.
If you need more, the park is home to Philadelphia's only "Moon Tree". Kind of a neat attraction in itself.
