    Sightseeing in Philly
    We will be making a day trip to Philly next week and want to take in the major sites:

    Franklin Institute
    Independence Hall
    Liberty Bell Center
    Constitution Center

    What I'm most concerned about is where to park or how to get into the area. But any tips will be welcome.

    Philly does have some very nice Chinese restaurants and a Little Chinatown. Most of these sights are within walking distances of each other. Remember Philly was a smallish city back in the day of Benjamin Franklin.

    Don't forget Betsy Ross's house. The houses on that street are mostly authentic from that period.

    I did stick my finger in the crack of the Liberty Bell before it was encased in glass. Yeah, I'm that old.

    Philly does have a wonderful Museum of Art - well worth visiting as well. Don't leave that off your list.
