One Day in Philly - Travel Itinerary

If you love US history, then it’s hard to beat a visit to Philadelphia! There’s something magical about standing in the exact rooms where the most important documents in US history were drafted. And getting to experience iconic pieces of history like the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House, and the gravesite of the great Benjamin Franklin makes Philadelphia a unique and very special US city that’s worth a visit. And we haven’t even gotten into the food here! Can anyone say Philly Cheesesteak?! Yes, please! We had the privilege of visiting this amazing city for one day and wanted to put together an itinerary that is perfect for the time-crunched travelers like us! We hope it’s helpful, and be sure to watch our “1 Day in Philadelphia” vlog for a closer look at our time in the City of Brotherly Love!
