Planning a trip to Philadelphia may seem overwhelming. The city has so much history, culture and great local food, it’s hard to know where to start. If you only have a few days to take it all in, you may not be able to see and do everything. However, with a few tips, you can be sure your trip will include all the best stops.
The Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell is not just a central icon of American democracy but happens to be centrally located, as well.
The Liberty Bell attracts long lines of visitors and, in its current home, it is no longer visible from any outdoor vantage point. Plan ahead by getting tickets for a guided walking tour that includes the Liberty Bell. Preferably, see the Liberty Bell in the morning, leaving the rest of your day open to explore the surrounding neighborhood. Tours are lead by experienced and knowledgeable guides in period costumes, which can make the educational portion of your visit fun for the whole family.
