Walking around 4 city blocks - sitting and standing required.
Full American Breakfast on the Mezzanine.
After breakfast we board the bus and travel ten blocks to the Colonial City, America's most historic square mile, for a visit to The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, both of which are national treasures and icons of American democracy. The old cracked Bell still proclaims Liberty and Independence Hall echoes the words, "We the People". Explore Benjamin Franklin's Philadelphia and learn about the past and America's continuing struggle to fulfill the Founders' Declaration that "all men are created equal".
Lunch vouchers will be provided at the Museum of the American Revolution.
We'll visit the recently opened Museum of the American Revolution. The Museum of the American Revolution has an impressive collection of several thousand objects, works of art, manuscripts, and printed works from the period of the American Revolution. The collection began more than a century ago when a history-minded minister in Valley Forge raised funds from around the nation to purchase the original tent that George Washington used as his command center during the American Revolution. It was the beginning of a rich and diverse collection that continues to grow. The collection includes objects that span the scope of the war—from British, French, and American arms used in battles to a soldier's wooden canteen branded "UStates," at a time when the phrase was merely an aspiration.
Ben Franklin has returned just for this evening to join you for dinner. He will tell you about his childhood and adult accomplishments. He has not aged a day!!
After dinner we will take a Septa bus home from dinner.
