Standing proudly as the "birthplace of the United States", Independence Hall, as its name suggests, is a site of historic importance. Perhaps it won’t be an exaggeration to say that it is one of the biggest icons of America as a democratic society. It was here that the Declaration of Independence was endorsed and signed with George Washington announcing himself as the chief commander of the Army.
The Rodin Museum
With massive refurbishments, Rodin Museum is once again open for the tourists. It is situated just a few meters away from Philadelphia Museum of Art. This brilliant museum displays a wide collection of French sculptor Auguste Rodin - the largest outside Paris.
Located on the Second Street, Elfreth’s is the oldest residential street in the United States. Here simple brick homes encompass the narrow streets. These homes are meant for the local artists and their families to live in. Persevering three centuries of evolution, the Alley is all about Flemish bond brickwork, old-fashioned shutters, flower boxes and other artistic intricacies.

Liberty Bell stands on the Chestnut Street, standing just opposite to the famous Independence Hall. Due to its historic significance, this bell is believed to be the most popular tourist attraction of the city. Its charm and aura draw millions of tourists every season.
