“Historic and Educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Took the tour last year and I'm glad I did, this place is the real deal, it happened here and if your an American, don't miss the chance to see the place our great country was born. If you don't get something out of a visit to Independence National Historical Park then something is wrong with you. It is all a lot smaller than I had envisioned, but happened here is really big, be sure and take a carriage ride the Historic District, the carriage drivers are very knowledgeable and it's worth the $'s all in all I would do it again, the Liberty Bell is also a great place to visit, it's right across the street.

“You can feel the history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Park rangers are very knowledgeable and willing to talk. Nicely maintained buildings with large grass expanses and several adjoining informational centers. The souvenir prices are ridiculous. Keep in mind that in the same area of official sites are plenty of for profit attractions that are poorly done.

“An impressive place...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The park was surrounded with lots of historical buildings and also was very clean. To see The Liberty Bell close was really impressive. During the visit you can hear and learn very interesting details about American history e.g. did you know that in 1800, not L.A., not New York, but Philadelphia was the largest city, a distinction it held until 1830. Go and visit this place so you can feel a living history of the war of liberation...
