Stunning architecture where history was made in the founding of the nation. Bricks perfectly balanced against wood and a spiked tower makes this structure as impressive as the day it was built. Uniquely a symbol of Philly and the nation, it remains a top tourist attraction so expect tons of crowds. Go in the off season and a work day for more intimate experiences.

Independence hall is a must see. So much history happened here. It is open for tour and I would highly recommend when in town.

If you are interesting in the history of the United States government, then this venue is for you. The Liberty Bell is also on site.

Thankfully Independence Hall and a few other key sights are still open while Covid is still hanging around. Independence Hall used to allow 70 people in on each tour and currently only 9 at a time are allowed inside. We went during a time when there weren’t a lot of tours, so even with 9 at a time, we didn’t have to wait long. We heard from one of the park rangers that weekdays are shorter lines than weekends. Another tip when visiting the old city is to plan your visiting day of the week around what you want to see. Check the websites ahead of time as several things we found had only partially re-open Wednesday-Saturday.

This tour of independence hall was enjoyable but you can only go in 2 rooms ( The 1st room was kind of the judicial or Jude room) ( The 2nd room was the room where they wrote the constitution and you can see the ACTUAL CHAIR THAT one of the guys that wrote the constitution sat there. And that’s all you get to do. And the lines are ridiculous because me and my dad waited for 30 minutes-1 1/2 hours to wait to get inside and the tour lasted for about 20-30 minutes. And all the tour was good.
