Independence National Historical Park

At Independence National Historical Park, you can trace our nation’s first footsteps.

In the heart of America’s first capital city, this urban park invites you to explore buildings that date prior to the Revolutionary War, artifacts once held by our Founding Fathers, and exhibits that trace the evolution of our democracy.

Come to see the Liberty Bell at Liberty Bell Center, recall the pithy wisdom of Benjamin Franklin at Franklin Court, and take a picnic to the park to watch fireworks on the Fourth of July.

In a city steeped with American history, Independence National Historical Park provides an opportunity to dig deeply into the words, people, and events that shaped the character of our nation.

Tour Independence Hall, where delegates to the Second Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence. Visit Congress Hall, meeting place of the first U.S. Congress, which ratified the Bill of Rights. Trace the roots of our financial system to the First and Second Banks of the United States.

At the end of your busy day, head to City Tavern, where the first 4th of July was celebrated. You can celebrate, too—the restaurant is still in operation.
