Best Hiking Trails in Independence National Historical Park
For those who graduated from an American schooling system (and even for those history buffs who didn't), a visit to Independence National Historical Monument in Philadelphia is a real marvel, as you see artifacts learned from childhood just a hand's breadth away.
Don't plan on driving all the way to the park itself. Instead, find easier parking elsewhere and either walk or take public transportation to the park. Get travel tips here.
There's plenty to do besides seeing the Liberty Bell! With over 12 buildings to visit, found out what there is to discover, here.
When to Go
Building hours vary, but the park is open year-round. Check schedules, here.
Mostly fee-FREE! That said, getting (free) tickets beforehand might be required. Check here for details on which are free and which require a fee.
It's best to leave Fido behind for this one, as pets aren't allowed in the public buildings. That said, a stroll around the parks is still a nice walk, though you'd be missing the main attractions.
