If sitting for hours in bumper to bumper traffic just to get to an overcrowded beach is not how you want to spend this Fourth of July, then take a short drive to historic Philadelphia, and celebrate our nation's birthday with some fun, educational and inexpensive experiences the whole family can enjoy. Here are a few historic sites and fun activities to check out this July 4 weekend in Philly.
- Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were signed, and the Liberty Bell Center will be open July 4 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you aren't planning on spending the entire day, then I suggest you visit these two locations first. Both locations offer countless exhibits and artifacts that will pique the interest of any patriot, young or old.
