2014 Road Trip – Philadelphia Historic Downtown

The drive in to Philly the night before gave us a bit of snow/rain so we didn’t get much done that night.  Woke up the next morning and took a walk through the historic downtown area.  Saw the Liberty Bell.  We also took the Constitutional Walking Tour which was guided by a very knowledgeable guy in period clothing, which let us visit things like the Declaration House, Independence Hall, Christ Church and Burial Ground, Betsy Ross House, and Arch Street.  I didn’t take as many pictures as I could have because I was listening to the guide but I feel like I needed a history book to keep up.  Its a very odd feeling walking the same streets as the founding fathers of our nation.  Highly recommend if you ever visit!
