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!

No need to stop here unless you are looking for information on tours, attractions in the area, or restrooms. I didn't find it that helpful. In fact, when I asked if there was a guide/map for walking the area, I was handed a map with a big circle drawn around the perimeter of Old City.

Saw a long line for tickets for independence hall and panicked. It was easy. Line moved quickly. Staff was helpful. Right around corner from tickets the rangers have maps and lots of helpful suggestions. Helps you maximize visit for time available and ages of your group

They are renovating. Perhaps it will be better when done. We obtained free tickets for the guided tour here. But, because we would have had to wait so long for its start, we started to walk around. I found that if you know the history, you can do without the tour. I should have gotten the tickets one day for the tour the next day.
