    Get your free tour tickets early. They can run out by 2pm on busy days. Well worth seeing where it all began.

    You can only get into independence hall with tickets (free!) from the visitor center down the street. They're free, and assign you a time slot for your tour.

    In the Assembly Room of this National Historic Site in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted and a new nation was born. Visit the birthplace of America for history and charm.

    Where the Earth's location in regards to the sun ceases to have meaning, and Nicholas Cage finds some super nifty glasses that allow you to see more clues on the Declaration of Independence.

    Get timed ticket at the Visitors Center and walk across to the tour start at 5th & Chestnut. Tour is remarkably low-key, leaving the setting as the main focus as it should be.

    Try to get your tickets as soon as possible during times of the year when it's busy, otherwise you will have to try to get squeezed in if they run out.
