We spent a couple hours walking around independence hall. It was really hot. We didn't go into the hall. We did see the liberty bell from the outside.

Every American should visit this site. The line was long but moved quickly and was well worth it and it is free! Great picture opportunities next to the Liberty Bell.

The 30th Street Station is at least 20 blocks from the historic district and would be a long walk. You can take the SEPTA train from the Amtrak 30th street station using the Market/Frankfort line. There are several stops... More
