Full description
When one thinks of Philadelphia the first thing that comes to mind is the liberty bell. Originally housed in the independence hall, it now has its own building: the Liberty Bell Center. The center is filled with plenty of history about the Liberty Bell, and there is also of course the bell itself.

Learn about Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution was debated and signed. Betsy Ross house is a small house with a big history, with Betsy Ross being credited with stitching the first American flag.

City Hall will be next, which is the beautiful centerpiece of the city. Anchoring the long expanse of Broad Street, it offers an almost castle-like atmosphere with its intricate arches and stairways. You will then be able to run the "Rocky Steps", with the perfect photo and video opportunity waiting for you at the top of these iconic stairs. Philadelphia loves Rocky, and this is a truly iconic place with countless tourists lining up to grab a photo and doing their best Balboa impressions running up the steps.

After visiting the most iconic places in Philadelphia you will head out to Lancaster County and the Amish community. There you will be taken back in time by their way of life, which includes no modern technology, electricity, or cell phones. You can experience an original Amish buggy ride to visit the local Amish farms, and will also enter an Amish home. Leaving the Amish in the afternoon, you will head back to New York City.
