"Visit Independence Hall" Independence - Carpenter's Hall Tip by no1birdlady

  Independence Hall
by no1birdlady

We had about 2 hours to go visit the historic sights in Philadelphia before our timed tickets for the King Tut Exhibit. So we walked down to the historic area to see Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence first was adopted and the U.S. Constitution was written. We found out that you have to have a timed ticket to go into Independence Hall and then get into a long security line so we didn't have time to do any of that. So if you go here, plan to go early or reserve tickets in advance at www.recreation.gov for a small fee. You may visit all of the other sights without a ticket or reservation so that's what we did.
