FAQ about excursion
It's hard to decide on a tour if you don't know the details. Therefore, we will immediately answer the most basic questions about excursions to Philadelphia.
- Why one day?
Because this is the most convenient format — and you won’t have time to get tired, and cover the most interesting, and you don’t need to look for an overnight stay in another city. I came, I saw, I was impressed! And drove back to comfort.
- And why go to Philadelphia at all?
This is one of the most beautiful cities in the eastern United States, and also the first capital. Between Philadelphia and Washington DC is only 2.5 hours away, so it is simply a sin to miss such an opportunity.
- Is this a driving tour?
Yes, of course - you will comfortably get to Philadelphia and back, you will quickly and conveniently ply inside the city itself and stop where you want. All this time you will not need to carry bags on you, suffer from heat or cold, think about safety or speed of movement.
What to see in Philadelphia
Usually we approach the matter individually: we paint the route and viewpoints based on your preferences and interests. But still, let's talk about a few places that are always in demand and which are really impossible to pass by.
- Independence Hall
A UNESCO monument and the first home of American power. It was here that the history of the United States began in 1776. Inside is the Assembly Hall, where the Constitution was signed, and in front of the building is a statue of the first president, George Washington. The situation is preserved in the smallest detail, so you will literally visit the point from where everything unfolded to a great power.
- Liberty Bell
The bell is also associated with Independence Hall — it was he who notified people that they were no longer dependent on the English metropolis. It is curious that it was cast just in England. Previously, it was erected on top of the building, but dismantled due to a crack that appeared. Now everyone can see and even touch history.
- Independence Park
18 hectares of historical buildings of the 18th century invariably arouse admiration and interest. Houses, paving streets, parks and churches... Old America in all its glory, and it's in the center of the metropolis. The main sights of the city are concentrated in the National Park of Independence, as well as on the National Mall in Washington, so walking there is a pleasure.
- Franklin Memorial
In Philadelphia, one of the founders of the country and the brand face of the $100 bill, Benjamin Franklin, spent almost his entire life. Here he is buried. Every year, millions of people come to this place to pay respect to the founding father and see the country as he saw it.
A one-day tour can dilute and complement your impressions of Washington without much effort and high cost. In addition to a convenient format and an interesting program, you will be able to communicate with a large number of people and get to know the country from the inside. And such an experience is worth a lot and is not available on every trip.
Fortunately, American Butler specialists know how and love to organize leisure activities as richly and fully as possible.
