Walking back from Philly's Chinatown, we decide to stop in and joined a tour group. The place is huge and interesting (amazing history, with many heroes of the American Revolution having been members). Bring a camera; the visual sights are amazing!

A beautiful building with many interesting things to see inside. Everyone should visit Phila's Masonic Temple at least once. If you live here, come on down & if you're visiting , put it on your list.

It is very difficult to find a free parking in this area. Paid parking garages are available throughout the center parts of Philadelphia though.
