Arrived in Philly after closing hours, so we didn't get to tour Independence Hall and see the Liberty Bell up close (altho we were able to see it thru the window), but it was a lovely area to walk and enjoy the architecture and the history that took place there. Just a couple blocks worth of walking. Informative videos are constantly running.

Our tour guide made this visit most memorable. He certainly gave the historic view of what it is all about; unlike the Liberty Bell.

Walking up the mall towards the State House is awe inspiring. You can imagine the unpaved streets, noise, horses, heat of the day when they were hammering out both the Declaration and Constitution. This is historic and celebrated ground

I'm a Fourth of July baby and National Treasure is one of my son's favorite movies. To stand in history and imagine being there when it was happening.....so in awe!

For the longest time it was told that President Lincoln spoke at Independence Hall. Well, they were wrong; Lincoln did in fact speak there but he was not President Lincoln yet, merely the President-elect. He stopped in Philly on his way to his first inauguration in Washington. I can also attest to the fact that President Kennedy spoke there one Fourth of July.... I was there and saw him! Wonder if Lincoln stopped at Pat's for a Cheese-steak? What a great way to end a great tour of one of America's truly iconic structures. Take the tour and when you are in the legislative chamber and they ask about the 2 "doors' in the front, one an actual door, the other a facade, tell them it's because the architecture of the day demanded that everything be "balanced" and one door would have upset that, so they just added a false door to even things out! Lots to learn about our great country and our great City of Philadelphia, the Capital of the USA for 10 years before a compromise moved the Capital to the south.
