  • Fascinating American History

  • World-class Museums

  • Unique City Spots

Independence Hall

First opened in 1753, both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were signed inside Independence Hall. Now, it is the centre of Independence National Historic Park and a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

 

Liberty Bell

Once placed at the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House, the Liberty Bell heralded important political meetings taking place inside, as well as standing as a symbol for freedom and independence. It famously cracked shortly after it was hung, but is now a major tourist attraction across the street from Independence Hall. 

 

Elfreth's Alley

This historic street dates all the way back to 1702, before America became an independent country. There are 32 houses on the street which were built between the years 1728 and 1836, as well as an Elfreth's Alley Museum, which is a National Historic Landmark. 

 

Betsy Ross House

Though there aren't really any substantial facts that prove Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, you can still visit her historic home in Philadelphia! The colonial house was built in 1740 and remains one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city today.

Philadelphia Museum of Art

As one of the largest art museums in the world, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is an essential stop on your tour of the city. Don't miss extensive exhibits ranging from Ancient Greek scultpure to Impressionist paintings. Also, climb the famous steps to the museum entrance which feature in the Rocky films. 

 

Franklin Institute 

Named after the influential scientist and politician Benjamin Franklin, the Franklin Institute is a science museum and major centre of research and edcuation in Philly. The science museums hosts a variety of engaging, interactive exhibits and a planetarium, making it an enjoyable stop for people of all ages. 

 

National Museum of American Jewish History

This museum is the only one of its kind in the country, detailing the life experiences and achievements of Jewish people in America. There are a range of artefacts from the colonial period to modern times, and a Hall of Fame which includes American pioneers like Albert Einstein, Stephen Speilberg, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

 

Museum of the American Revolution

Here you can learn all about how the former colonies achieved independence from Great Britain and became the United States of America in the 1770's. The museum is located in the heart of Philadelphia, the city which played a major role in the events of the war, just two blocks from Independence Hall. 

Reading Terminal Market

As the longest-running farmer's market in the United States, Reading Terminal Market is a great place to check out. Vendors sell all sorts of goods, from fresh produce to gourmet chocolate. The market is open all year round and is indoors. 

 

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

Located on trendy, upbeat South Street, Philadelphia's Magic Gardens are a folk art exhibit and non-profit organization. The art collection is a series of colourful mosaics, spreading across 3 outdoor lots and an indoor exhibit. 

 

Love Park

One of the most iconic spots for a photograph in Philly, Love Park houses a replication of Robert Indiana's LOVE sculpture which overlooks the square. The park is located right in Center City for easy access along your sight-seeing tour.

 

Spruce Street Harbor Park

An urban "beach" in the Penn's Landing area of Philadelphia, Spruce Street Harbor Park is home to 100 hammocks, thousands of LED lights, and many restaurants and pubs. The park is only open in the warmer months, and is a great place to spend some time on a warm summer night.
