We (DH, myself and 3 kids, 12, 8, and 5) will just have one day in Philadelphia. We will get there around 8 am on Saturday, May 31st. We wanted to go to the Liberty Bell/independence Hall first, but the online tickets are not available until around lunch time. If we are there at 8 or so, will there be a chance of getting an earlier time?
After seeing all of that (2 hours sound right??), we were going to use a hop on/hop off to see the rest of the city. We'd like to stop at Reading Terminal Market for lunch (1 hour or longer?), and then DH and the older boys will go to the pennitentiary while I bring the 5yo to the Please Touch Museum (2 hours for these?).
Does this sound doable for one day? I believe the bus tour ends at 5pm. If we can't get timed entry tickets for first thing in the morning, what time should we get them for, if we do these other things first? Thanks for any advice at all!
