Participants will depart from the hotel at approximately 8:30 AM for a tour of Philadelphia’s Historic sites including Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was debated and signed, Congress Hall where Congress met when Philadelphia was the nation’s capital, the Liberty Bell Center which houses the worldwide symbol of freedom, and the brand new National Constitution Center, which is described as the world’s first museum devoted to honoring and explaining the US Constitution. Participants will feel like they have stepped back in time as they lunch at City Tavern; a reconstruction of the tavern that stood in this location as long ago as 1773 and served as an unofficial meeting place for famous Philadelphians like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Participants will be returned to the hotel by 4:00 PM.
