Philadelphia is, literally, where the United States of America started. And, of you're in Philly, you owe it to yourself to be in the literal room where it all happened.

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.
