There are countless places to visit in history-rich Philadelphia and none are more important to American history than Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. My wife and I only had time for a brief visit so we made sure we saw the Liberty Bell. We are glad we did!

I enjoyed seeing the Liberty Bell. The only part I felt bad about was when a little boy asked the park ranger what the Roman Numerals meant on the top of the bell. He said it was the year the bell was made. Actually - it was a Bible Scripture. Leviticus 25:10. My question - is the national park service... More

Being in the cradle of our democracy where representatives had to learn to work together in today's world took on a special meaning. Tickets can be reserved online or one can show up at the Visitor's Center across the street at 8:30 the morning of.. A must for anyone in Philly with free time.

I think you have to see the Liberty Bell if you are in Philadelphia. It's just the thing to do! There is a small informational area before you get to the bell and the area around the bell is very open so you can walk around it without any problem.

If you are in Philadelphia this is a must. Make sure if you are running behind on the day to reserve your tickets. We went at noon and tickets for tour were already sold out. The parking garage is a good option that is not to expensive. On the weekends it stays open late also

Quick and easy to see. Be ready for security check of bags and coats or jackets. This is self guided and the bell is at the end.
