PHILADELPHIA STUDENT TOURS
A student tour to the birthplace of our nation, any Philadelphia Student Tours will create an experience for students grounded in American history, starting with a visit to the iconic Liberty Bell, the city where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were created. Philadelphia is the cradle of American democracy, highlighted by Independence Hall.
Walk along the quaint streets of Philadelphia, the 2nd Capital of the US, to learn of William Penn’s vision for his City of Brotherly Love which brought about the Holy Experiment of religious freedom, make the pilgrimage to Independence Hall where our Charters of Freedom -the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution was written and debated, learn the true significance of the Liberty Bell, and be on the lookout for Dr. Franklin at his home and office.
Student groups can explore Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was first issued, and explore the history of the Freedom Trail. Musicians can delve into the art of great American Jazz artists, John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie while exploring the city of brotherly love.
