Rate this Entry
The city of Philadelphia has a lot to offer visitors, and the best way to experience it all is to hop on one of its many sightseeing tours. From a trip to the Museum of Art with its collection of Salvador Dali and Max Ernst works, to a tour of the Franklin Institute or a visit to the Philadelphia Zoo, there’s something for everyone.
If you’re looking for a way to get around the city, then consider the Philadelphia CityPASS, which provides access to daytime double-decker bus tours. This pass has 27 stops and includes attractions like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and more. It’s a great option for those who want to see as much as possible in the city in a short amount of time, and it also offers courtesy shuttles from Philadelphia city center hotels.
Another great option is the Philadelphia CityPASS + Big Bus Tours, which gives you a ticket to the double-decker buses as well as entrance into landmarks such as the National Constitution Center and the Betsy Ross House. It’s a great option for first-time visitors who don’t have a lot of time in the city and want to maximize their experience, as well as those who are staying in town for more than one day and want to spread out their sightseeing over a longer period.
Other options include the One Liberty Observation Deck, which allows you to take in 360-degree panoramas of skyscrapers and local landmarks from the 57th floor of the One Liberty Place building. The deck has a large blue sculpture of Benjamin Franklin and is also home to a #TheRealPhilly exhibit.
