The Liberty Bell Center
Vacay For Less first visits the most well-known symbol of Philadelphia; one of the most famous bells in the world, the Liberty Bell. Located to the right of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell is a true symbol of Americana, and one of its many famous landmarks, seen by millions every year. Engraved with “”Proclaim LIBERTY Throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof,” the bell developed its famous crack in the 19th century, as urban legend believes that it was rung to signify the death of the historic Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall in 1835.
The city of Philadelphia allowed the bell to go on tours, drawing massive crowds (and sustaining more damage along the way).
The last of these journeys occurred in 1915, resulting in the National Park Service took custody of the bell after World War II. Guided tours will inform you about the history of the bell, the city in general, and its place in American history.
Vacay For Less next looks at arguably the most important stop in American history, and the founding of the nation was undertaken in these very rooms. Independence Hall is the signing location of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, making it the legitimate birthplace of American independence. The main room is arranged in the same way as it was so many years ago, during the Constitutional convention, complete with the famed “rising sun chair” of George Washington.
The west wing of Independence Hall features the original inkstand used the sign the Declaration of Independence and one of the last remaining original drafts of the Constitution.
One of 23 World Heritage Sites in the United States, as well as a federal landmark, this is truly a spot that any lover of history needs to put on their bucket list. National Park rangers lead guided tours around the Hall, which also gives visitors a look at Independence National Historical Park.
These are just two famous locations, and there are many other stops that you can take while you visit Philly.
This includes the Rocky steps, the Reading Terminal Market, Valley Forge National Historical Park, and much more. If you’re a lover of American history, someone who values colonial architecture, or just looking for a great vacation, then Philadelphia is perfect for you.
