  • A pre-cursor to the modern Federal Reserve Bank system, not your corner retail bank drive up with ATM/
  • The First Bank of the United States is one of my favorite buildings in Philadelphia. Designed by Samuel Blodgett, visiting this building is all about the exterior. The interior is not open to the public nor does it date to the 18th Century. But the front facade is an amazing relic of the days when Philadelphia was the capital of the young nation. The pediment contains one of the earliest representations of the American eagle. Look for he images of Mercury, the God of banking over the front door. This is a great place for wedding and engagement pictures.
  • It is historic place but is closed
  • Went there for a trip. 10/10 Would visit again for absolutely no reason at all.
  • Beautiful on the outside. You can't get in.

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.
