Explore Independence Hall
Step back into our nation's history with a night spent at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Independence Park Hotel, located right in the center of Philadelphia's Historic District. You'll never have an easier time getting to landmark attractions like Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the National Constitution Center.
Stay just across the street from Independence National Historical Park, whose centerpiece attraction is Independence Hall. Enjoy a guided tour of the hall and see the rooms where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were created and signed. You'll find the hall just five minutes away as you travel west on Chestnut Street. Complete your Independence Hall visit with a trip to the Liberty Bell Center, which houses the original Liberty Bell. Admire this seminal piece of American history – the Liberty Bell was cast in 1752, and was dubbed as the Liberty Bell in the 1830s by abolitionists. Admission is free and there are plenty of wonderful exhibitions surrounding the bell.
Families and history buffs will love exploring the park's lesser-known but just as valuable hallmarks. See Benjamin Franklin's character and epic achievements come to life at the Benjamin Franklin Museum on Chestnut Street or see a fine collection of over 100 early American portraits at the Portrait Gallery in the Second Bank, also on Chestnut Street. Be sure to set aside time to visit over 25 other attractions, including Congress Hall, Old City Hall, and the Second Bank of the United States.
