Journey through History on a Tour of Philly

Friday, December 12th, 2008
Philadelphia is a great place to spend some time, and whether it’s hot or cold outside there will always be tons to see and do.  Also known as the ‘Birthplace of America’ and the ‘City of Brotherly Love,’ it is packed with historical sites and was once the home of Betsy Ross, the creator of the American flag, and author Edgar Allan Poe.   A few such distinguished sights in the area include the Liberty Bell – which was one of the most prominent symbols of the Revolutionary War and today symbolizes justice and liberty –  Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was mulled over and approved, and the First and Second Banks of the United States. 
Once you arrive in Philly, you will see that there are more attractions than you know what to do with.  An excellent way to cover a lot of them at once is the Philadelphia City Tour by Trolley.  On this survey of the city, you will get to see the Liberty Bell up close, along with Betsy Ross’s house where she was thought to have conceived the idea of the American flag, the US Mint, Chinatown, the Academy of Music, and thirteen other notable locations.  As an added perk, you can hop on and off the trolley as many times as you would like, as your ticket will be valid all day.  If you decide to stay on the trolley and go straight through, the trip takes about 90 minutes.
Should you seek a more leisurely tour, you can take the ever-popular Philadelphia Carriage Tour.  For one hour, you get to sit back and enjoy the ride as you take in the historic sights and learn about their humble beginnings.  As your horse navigates the tree-lined streets of the National Historic Park, which is also the most historic square mile in the country, you will be amazed at how far the nation has come and will get an idea of where we came from.  Society Hill is also a feature on this tour, and it is the largest collection of 18th century homes and churches in America.  This is not all; you will also pass Betsy Ross’s house and much more.  The carriage tour option is wonderful for families but can also serve as a romantic way to spend part of an evening with a loved one.

 

If you have done these two tours and are still thirsting for more, you can do a scenic dinner cruise or tour the town by Segway.  This is definitely not an exhaustive list, so take a look at all that Philly Tours has to offer for your next trip.
