Who Knew Philly's such a Cheap and Easy Date?


Philadelphia is a place to see and be seen. And it can be done rather quickly and cheaply.

Elfreth's Alley in Old City dates back to circa 1702, and offers free tours too.

Want more for free? Check out the tours of Independence Hall and Independence Mall, and The Liberty Bell. See where it all began by touring Independence Hall and then walk right across the street to see the Liberty Bell.

Want a taste of the Raven? Tour Edgar Allan Poe's home.

Even some trees and blades of grass hail back to the Lewis and Clark expedition and still thrive in Old City and Society Hill. Where do you think those guys studied for the Trail trip? Want more for free? Checkout the American Philosophical Society.

Stroll north along Independence Mall and see all the historical kiosks and exhibitions, like the President's House, along with a trip inside the National Constitution Center.

Never let it be said that Philly isn't cheap and easy.
