Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

343 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

Ben Franklin was buried here in 1790 at 85 years of age. He is buried with his wife Deborah and his two children. The burial ground is a colonial and revolutionary era cemetery. which has many early patriots interred in it. It sits right off the Independence Mall. You can see the grave site through the metal fence or enter the grounds.

It’s easy to see from the sidewalk. I was thinking we weren’t going to see anything since the place was closed, but you can literally walk right up to it. There a gate that separates you but it’s still very clear and visible. Very very cool!

Easy to see. Right on the corner of the cemetery. We visited during a free tours by foot. It was very nice having a guide to teach you history and facts. I would recommend that.

The cemetery wasn’t opened, but I was able to view Benjamin Franklin’s final resting place, to pay respects.

I could only see it from the sidewalk because it was closed. I could not enjoy it well. On the wall there is info about the things Benjamin did, but I expected something better because of his legacy.
