Liberty Bell

When I was a little girl you were able to walk right up to the Liberty Bell and touch it. You could walk all around it and see all the detail. In a post 9/11 world the Liberty Bell is now super roped off. The Liberty Bell has its own building across the street from Independence Hall. Depending when you go, the line for the bell can be very long. Once you get to the front of the line you can only spend about a minute or two taking it in. Unlike Independence Hall you do not need a ticket to see the bell. I highly suggest visiting when it isn’t busy so you have time to really examine the bell. This bell is the replacement bell for the original one that cracked after reaching Philly. The funny thing is this bell also cracked. Then it was repaired only to crack again. It originally hung in the bell tower in Independence Hall.

Philadelphia

I love Philly! It is in my top 3 cities in the world (NYC and Vegas are the other two). I’ve been going there since I was a little girl. We go about two or three times a year. Philly has great shops, restaurants, and sites. We have been to so many different restaurants and historical sites yet I still have a list of places I want to go to. Since I have been so many times I’m not going to post a travel journal instead I’m going to post reviews of all places I’ve been to. I’ll also do a top 10 post at some point. Below you will find some photos from over the years (more will appear in the other Philly posts) and a link to my postcards from Philly.
