I haven’t visited historic Philadelphia, the birthplace of America, since I was a kid but this time I brought along my youngest niece. If you love American history, this is a must-do trip. One of the great things about visiting historic Philadelphia is that all of the main attractions are within easy walking distance of each other. We visited Independence Hall (my favorite because the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were signed here), the Liberty Bell, Benjamin Franklin’s Grave in Christ Church Burial Ground, the Philadelphia Mint (my niece’s favorite because you can see the coins being minted), the President’s House (America’s first White House), the National Constitution Center (where original copies of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are held), the Betsy Ross House (where seamstress Betsy Ross allegedly sewed the first American flag), and more!
