In this small area you can learn and see much which will make you ponder on the beginnings of the United States.

Visited the Independence Nat'l Park during a recent visit to Philly. Never expected to be so moved by seeing the Liberty Bell. The way to view it is to stand back against the wall and view it for a while and then it hits you.

There was a long line to wait in today but totally worth the wait. Seeing the Liberty Bell up close and personal was a must do when in Philly. Such a historical place with so much meaning.

When you visit independence hall and the National Park you feel a part of history. It is crowded towards the end of the school year but worth the trip at any time.

I was disappointed to not get in for the Independence Hall tour, but so many other things to see. So much history. Just make sure you stop and check it out. The Park Service has done GREAT job.

Go early or go late - the lines are shorter. Start when attractions first open, or go at 5pm! We went to see the Liberty Bell at 5:30 and walked right in!

This was definitely on my Bucket Lis. The Liberty Bell is an American Treasure that all should visit at least once.

Yes open till 6 pm. But I’d triple check before going down. It’s a great experience.

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