Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Penn's Landing, On the Delaware River from Market St. to Lombard St., Philadelphia, PA 19103

Explore the Delaware River by taking a ride on the Delaware Harbor Cruise when you board the Patriot or Liberty yacht for a relaxing one-hour cruise on the Delaware River. The Patriot and Liberty are reproductions of 1920’s commuter yachts that offer an intimate setting where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the City.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: City Hall Visitor Center, 1 Penn Square Room 121, Philadelphia, PA 19107

We will step into the largest and tallest City Hall in the US, and take in spectacular views of Philadelphia from its open-air observation deck. The City Hall's tower is over 500 feet tall and its observation deck is situated just below the bronze statue of Philadelphia's founder, William Penn. Ride the elevator to the top of the ornate building and enjoy 360-degree views of Philly and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. On a clear day, you can see right across the Delaware River and into New Jersey. *When the City Hall Tower is closed, the tour will visit the US Mint instead.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Second Bank of the United States, Chestnut Street 4th and 5th Streets, Philadelphia, PA 19106

The "People of Independence" exhibit provides a glimpse into the lives of those who prized order and reason, yet lived in a world marked by disease, slavery, and the fear of the unknown. Portraits by artist Charles Wilson Peale form the core of the collection. In the early 1800's, these likenesses of "worthy Personages" were exhibited in Peale's Philadelphia Museum, located on the second floor of Independence Hall. Additional portraits by other artists, particularly a number by British pastel artists James and Ellen Sharples, have been added to the collection through the years.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: First Bank of the United States, 302 S 3rd St, Philadelphia, PA 19106-4229

After the Revolutionary War, the United States faced overwhelming debt and an uncertain commercial future. As a response, Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton stepped forward with a plan to establish a national bank, which would give the federal government more authority to handle the fiscal situation. His proposal incited a heated debate that tested the U.S. Constitution’s boundaries and laid the foundation for the country’s financial system.

Pass By: Betsy Ross House, 239 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19106-1999

Elizabeth Griscom Ross, also known by her second and third married names, Ashburn and Claypoole, was an American upholsterer who was credited by her relatives in 1870 with making the first American flag, accordingly known as the Betsy Ross flag.

Stop At: Liberty Bell Center, 6th Street Between Market and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Easily recognizable because of its crack, the Liberty Bell remains significant today for its message of liberty. Abolitionists, women's suffrage activists, civil rights leaders and others have all used this bell as their symbol in the fight for equality.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Independence Hall, Chestnut Street between 5th and 6th Streets, Philadelphia, PA 19106

The Independence Hall is the building where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. It is now the centerpiece of the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Rocky Statue, 2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy Center City Phila, Philadelphia, PA 19130-2302

The 72 stone steps leading up to the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have become known as the "Rocky Steps" as a result of a scene from the film Rocky. Tourists often mimic Rocky's famous climb, a metaphor for an underdog or an everyman rising to a challenge

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Washington Monument, Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Eakins Oval, Philadelphia, PA 19102

The Society of the Cincinnati of Pennsylvania was founded at the City Tavern in Philadelphia on October 4, 1783, to commemorate those who had fought together during the War of Independence.
