  • Worth the visit! Its a hidden treasure in Philadelphia. It's so close to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and all the crowds they attract, yet the square is much more peaceful and green and pleasant. It's a nice place for a quite break from the nearby hustle and bustle.
  • Such an amazing place. Clean and beautiful. Very pensive space, beautifully designed. The ever burning flame and unknown grave are finely complimented by the local art of the stoops. The fountain in the middle is unimpressive but a fine addition.
  • I like to go here for a quiet moment to think.
  • Right near Independence Hall (the Liberty Bell) and other historic tourist spots. Now also close to the Museum of the American Revolution, which just opened. A great, small park to stop by on a detour!
  • A really neat piece of history that’s in the middle of a great park.

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.
