Day 1 - Philadelphia


Historic Philadelphia is a walking area, contained within a few blocks. In one full day, you can see the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House, Independence Hall and Independence National Historical Park, Old City Hall, The First Bank of the United States, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, AND the beautiful Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church. This day includes a ride in a horse-drawn carriage when your feet need some rest (or a good way to start the day, since the drivers give you historical information about the sites you pass). After dinner at the Old Original Bookbinder's, you can get a bit more history and a lot more entertainment on a Lights of Liberty high-tech tour. After all this, you'll be ready for some sleep!
