"Go to the top of City Hall" City Hall Tip by DrexelDragon
City Hall, Philadelphia: 35 reviews and 61 photos
A little known fact is that the public is allowed to go to the top of City Hall. It's actually pretty high, and you have a fantastic 360 deg view of the surrounding areas. There is a charge, and only about 5-7 people are allowed up at one time, but there are very few visitors that it shouldn't be a problem to go up once to get to the desk. Also, there are some plaques and displays concerning the construction of city hall.
Also, the building is under going a large facelift. They are washing the years of dirt and grime from the facade of the building. One half of the building was complete the last time I was home, and it looked really amazing. It's got great architecture; take the time to enjoy it.
Address: Broad and Market Streets
Directions: Center City - once inside follow the footpath directions to the top
