This location is a must see for anyone visiting Philadelphia. Location is great even in the middle of winter. I enjoyed the information panels and the photos through history.

Was in town for medical reasons and had a free afternoon. So we made a trip into Central Philadelphia. Was a wonderful, relaxing afternoon. We were fortunate enough to be able to tour the 2nd floor of Independence Hall!

A must stop. Even if you are not a history buff, you will enjoy Independence hall. They have a chair they can prove Washington sat in. Tour is free, but must get your tickets before hand. Have to go through security, so leave unneeded items...More

Very nicely done museum / park, well maintained and very much worth the time. This is a must do for all Americans or those looking to become an American, it's the building where this country began.

Its a long walk. Subway or Uber is a better option. Parking near the Terminal Market is tight. At Terminal Market try the Bassetts Ice Cream-oldest ice cream stand in America and its really good.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. It's a great location and beautiful hotel. There are several great options though.
