The place is currently under renovation, however it’s still open to the public. There is a lot of information and a gift shop. And a Rocky statue.

First thing you should do when you get to Philly is to visit the Independence visitors, you can get lots of information there, the bathrooms are always clean and the workers are great professional. They really help!

There is where the best parking in town is in order to see the main attractions in Philadelphia- but you’re going to pay for it!! $17.50 for 2 hrs!!

The visitor center it self is clean, large and is the place to go to it maps of the town and tickets to the main attractions. There is also a gift shop and eatery inside!
