Start your visit at the Visitor's Center to get a timed pass to visit Independence Hall. I also took the free Twilight Tour that was listed in the flyer given out with the pass. It is easy to spend the entire day seeing the sights.

Very important historical buildings all around this mall, so you must come here and experience the cradle of independence. Nice green space in the middle of Center City.
