  • Able to see Ben Franklin's grave from the street but there are tours available for the cemetery
  • A Revolutionary War burial ground, it is extremely well kept and provides the visitor with a unique historical look into our past.
  • The street view was good enough, to much to do elsewhere in the city, if you're only paying through
  • Worth the minimal fee to walk around, very humbling standing in front of the resting place of Benjamin Franklin. Well kept grounds.
  • Not much here other than the grave of Ben Franklin and his wife. It costs a bit to get into the cemetary, but you can view the grave site from outside if you want. This is fine to see as part of your overall experience at historic Philadelphia.

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.
