Ok, so if you're an American, and you're in Philly you have to see the Liberty Bell. The entrance to the Liberty Bell has a small security area, so on a nice day I'm assuming the line would take a while, but we waited about 3 minutes on a cold Friday because there weren't many people around. After security the... More

We had the luxury of spending 10 days in Philly and we tried to absorb as much colonial and revolutionary history as possible. What could be more iconic than visiting and learning about the Liberty Bell?

Independence Hall is full of history. Lines are usually not too long since most tourists just wait to see the Liberty Bell across the street. The guided tour is quick, but full of information about the building and its place in history.

Walk in to independence hall and imagine that you are standing and listening to our founding fathers debate our future. Simple surroundings. When you finish in their walk over to the Liberty Bell. Take in the rest of the independence mall area.

Definitely a place to check out - after all the bell is on so many of the postage stamps and there is a history and story behind it. Good for a visit for about an hour with kids.

We visited Independence Hall on 1/16/17. It was very informative & I enjoyed the audio presentations about noteworthy African American females in history.
