Independence National Historical Park has a plethora of wonderful attractions that truly succeed in bringing the past to life, including the Georgian-style Independence Hall (the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution), the Liberty Bell, Franklin Court, and the Betsy Ross House. History buffs will also enjoy visiting the National Constitution Center, President's House, and the recently renovated Benjamin Franklin Museum. All of these attractions, as well as many others, are located in the heart of the Old City, which is distinguished by charming townhouses and cobblestone streets that make the area easily navigable on foot.

Aside from the well-known landmarks, Philadelphia has a plethora of beautifully preserved colonial-era buildings, vintage row homes (including America's oldest inhabited residential street, Elfreth's Alley), and federal-style mansions, many of which can be found scattered throughout its neighborhoods and surrounding hills. If you need to unwind after a long day of sightseeing, immerse yourself in the city's thriving food and drink scene, making sure to try the city's renowned craft beer and famous Philly cheesesteak.
