    Tom goes above & beyond his job. He needs a raise! He is the most helpful, sweet & sincere person here! He recalibrated both squish penny machines & made sure they were both working!

    Mix cobblestone streets with the high-speed Market-Frankford Line and what do you get? An easy trip to historic sites along side hip restaurants. Ride SEPTA to Independence Mall at 5th St Station! Read more

    You could easily spend a few days browsing Independence Mall, part of America's "most historic square mile." Best part? Much of it is free.

    I did not get to see Independence Hall on my first Philly visit, but I didn't know that it was undergoing some renovations. Also, it's somewhat helpful that the Visitor Center is open until 6 p.m.
