Things to do in Philadelphia

National Constitution Center

The four-pages-long, centuries-old Declaration of Independence turns high-tech interactive for all ages here, where you'll also find an original public copy of "We the people."

Independence Hall

Walk the same halls as George Washington and see where the Declaration of Independence was adopted, the U.S. Constitution was debated, and a joker named Ben Franklin was known to trip opposing delegates.

Philadelphia Museum of Art

Make like Rocky and jog up the Museum's 72 stone steps, but don't stop there. Come inside the pillared landmark to explore 225,000 art objects across famed period rooms. Back outside, take in hilltop views of the city, Fairmont Park, the Schuylkill River … and the nearby Rocky statue.

Eastern State Penitentiary

Get behind bars (and a solid tour guide) at this historic "first" penitentiary, once home to criminals like Al Capone and "Slick" Willie Sutton. Test your mettle at night with a haunted tour of notoriously ghosty ESP.

Fairmont Park

Get lost in one of the largest parks in the country (and a whopping 10 percent of Philadelphia's land), including Rittenhouse Square, LOVE Park, America's oldest zoo, the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Reading Terminal Market

Come hungry to this 1893-landmark farmers market at 12th and Arch for a wildly diverse and delectable assortment of Philly feast-ables. If you eat only one thing, let it be an authentic Amish baked good.

Liberty Bell Center

Ever wonder what this bell has to do with the Declaration of Independence? Head to this centerpiece in Philly's Historic District to get the full story and see the iconic original, with its famed crack, biblical inscription and all.

Franklin Institute Science Museum

Bring the kids to this Ben Franklin tribute featuring stellar science exhibits, including a giant walk-through heart, an athletic Sports Challenge, IMAX theater and top-floor observatory.
