The Independence National Historic Park is what defines Philadelphia. It's a pretty compact area and without crowds, could easily be done in half a day! Please get your tickets to the Independence hall in advance (we were ok getting it at the site because it was winter). The tours are conducted by the NP rangers with true passion and bring the place alive. The rooms are maintained in an impeccable condition and walking through those halls is like walking through time. It's a crash course in history and how! The Liberty Bell is in a separate enclosure - and what's more to tell about the famous bell than what's already been said? It's truly unfortunate that the security guards at the Liberty Bell enclosure are so rude, almost an insult to the spirit of the bell they are guarding. Leaving that aside, the Independence National Historic Park is a must-do on your visit to Philadelphia! Don't miss it!!!
