Philadelphia: Independence Hall

America’s humble beginning can be seen in the simplicity of the interior of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. There’s nothing much there that shows power, glamour and grandiosity. When you go inside, all you see were antique furniture that were once used by the great American leaders: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, et al.

In short, the Independence Hall is THE birthplace of America. It is here were The Declaration of Independence was drafted, debated and signed on July 4, 1776. Yeah, that’s why they become super patriotic every year on July 4! 🙂

I don’t like the eye sores at the back of The Independence Hall. Those modern skyscrapers are ugly backdrop of this simple Georgian architecture.

The Tour: Get early to get a free ticket. You will be told what time you should be going inside with a tour guide who would lavish you with historical facts and trivias youve never heard before—which, of course, I wont divulge here. You have to go there yourself! 😉

The Assembly Hall. This is where The History happened. Yes, those chairs you see are the REAL ones they used ages ago, like the 18th century?!
