NationalLandmark,LibertyBell

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Philadelphia's Liberty Bell is one of the best-known symbols of freedom. Displayed in Philadelphia's historic district, across from Independence Hall, the bell is an essential part of any trip to the City of Brotherly Love. Families also love running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just like Rocky; scarfing cheesesteaks from Pat's or Gino's; and touring the historic and creepy Eastern State Penitentiary (whose Halloween haunted house is great for teens).

Next: Washington, D.C.
