When it comes to travel, many times seems like your wallet never gets a break. While there are often sites in cities such as Philadelphia that you'd like to see, affording them all (as well as lodging and food) can be quite a feat.
In the city of Philadelphia, there are quite a few venues that offer visitors free admission. The sites, many iconic historic powerhouses, deliver on value while not shortchanging you on educational or entertainment returns. For instance, did you know that you can stop in and snap a photo of yourself next to the Liberty Bell for no cost at all? True story. You can also walk the rooms of Independence Hall like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson and the rest of the Second Continental Congress did, all free. The U.S. Mint will not require you to pay, nor will Christ Church or it's burial grounds. In case you are thinking all of the sites are historical, there are other activities available that will not require you to remember a thing from your school days.
Whether you're watching your wallet, or just looking to cut down on the cost of going from site to site, these venues offer up great opportunities to experience the many faces of Philadelphia, all on a budget. Make a deposit into your inner educational bank, beef up on your history, walk where famous changemakers walked. No one has to know you kept your George Washingtons to yourself while doing it.
