  • Amazing to see history right in front of you! I think the entrance is $2.00 from last time i went. Very old and historic cemetery.
  • I am blown away that Benjamin Franklin's grave site is so visible is the city and how great that we still throw pennies on top. Very cool!
  • Small little cemetery near Liberty Bell containing final resting place of Benjamin Franklin, three other signers of the Declaration of Independence, and many early Colonial military and their family. The grave marker of Benjamin Franklin is currently under preservation and cannot be viewed.
  • Interesting to have such an old cemetery downtown. Definitely worth a visit!!
  • I don't know how exciting a cemetery is supposed to be. I was a little surprised to have to pay admission, but it is private property and receives a lot of foot traffic, so I feel the price was nominal considering the upkeep probably required. It was something that I'm glad I did. The staff were knowledgeable about the cemetery and were able to answer a few questions I had about the property.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
