Liberty Bell Center, Philadelphia

(3.9/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
The former site of Washington's slave quarters sits near the entrance of Liberty Bell Center. Upon entering the center, you'll find a series of exhibits before reaching the Liberty Bell. The bell is displayed out of reach (but in plain sight) and still hangs on what is thought to be the original yolk made of American elm. The bell's recognizable crack is clearly visible--observers have referred to it as a metaphor for the fragility of democracy. Be aware that all visitors are required to go through a security screening at the entrance. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Philadelphia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Liberty Bell Center and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
