Don’t be surprised if you spot people dressed in character, from tricorn hats down to square-buckled shoes, in this historic part of the city. After all, Philly is the Cradle of Liberty. Visiting these 55 acres of National Park is a must for anyone coming to Philadelphia. The abundance of landmarks in this park—including Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the Ben Franklin Museum—speak to its extraordinary role in the founding of the nation. Pro tip: limited additional 'next day' tickets are available at 5pm for the very popular Independence Hall tours the following day.
Strap yourself in; the City of Brotherly Love is quite the ride. There is no shortage of things to do in Philadelphia, quite the opposite, no matter whether you are a seasoned local or a fresh-faced tourist pounding the streets for the first time. Anyone with a passing interest in American history will find plenty to sink their teeth into, and the theme continues with some of the best food in the country. Much of that delicious food is at the city’s markets, where currency and conversation are king. Philadelphia’s must-see attractions are a love letter to everything that makes Philly special, then, now, and forever. Charge the camera, because you are about to take a lot of photos.
