Before July 4th 1776 the world was organized with God at the top, monarchs right below, then aristocrats, property owners, other free citizens, and slaves at the bottom. Inequality was the natural order. The Declaration of Independence changed all that, not only for the USA,...More

You cannot come to Philadelphia for the first time without spending some time in the old historic district. The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the like are right in this area. Absolutely a must.

There is allot of history and many sites to see packed into this area of Philly so take the time to see the bell. Get the story behind the bell also rather than just seeing the bell.

No, you will need to park and do yourself a favor: take another form of transport to get to that downtown area.
