Things to Do in Philadelphia

One of the best ways to experience all the rich history of this great destination is with a Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia, because you'll be able to see the most significant sites in a way that helps you envision them in context. The tour includes one of our travel experts' favorite activities in Philadelphia, which is exploring Independence National Historical Park. That's where you'll be able to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, located where the Constitutional Convention occurred in 1787. Several Founding Fathers had homes here, and it's also where Congress and the Supreme Court met during President George Washington's second term in office. To visit, you must have a free ticket, which can be obtained at the Visitor Center.

If you're flying to Philadelphia, you'll also want to plan a stop at Fairmount Park. The world's largest landscaped city park is always tops on lists of things to do in Philadelphia for good reason. It features over 100 miles of trails and paths that meander through wooded areas and over creeks--and it's also home to the Philadelphia Zoo.

Another one of the most popular activities in Philadelphia is the first U.S. Mint. Self-guided tours are free, and you'll be able to see the coin-making process firsthand. The area surrounding the Mint is known as the Old City, and it's dotted with colorful characters known as Crazy Colonials. These super-friendly and knowledgeable individuals wear colonial costumes, acting out street performances and answering tourists' questions.

For a sense of history with a different twist, you might want to consider the Haunted Philadelphia: Sprits of '76 Ghost Tour, which includes over a dozen sites that are known for their spine-tingling folklore.
