Day 2 – Philadelphia’s Independence National Historic Park – Dinner on the Sailing Ship Moshulu
Your historical journey begins at The Museum of the American Revolution here the Revolution comes to life through unique high tech galleries, theaters, and recreations of historical scenes. It gives perspective from Boston and the opening shots of the War, to Independence Hall and the signing of the Declaration, to Williamsburg and the final conflict.
It explores the ideas, events, and legacies of America’s Revolutionary beginnings here in Philadelphia where the spirit of Franklin is alive. You will visit Independence National Historic Park. The old cracked Bell still proclaims Liberty, and Independence Hall echoes the words “We The People.” Your guide will describe Benjamin Franklin’s Philadelphia as you learn of America’s past and our Founders’ declaration that “all men are created equal.”
You will focus on Independence Hall, perhaps the most historically important building in America. Here in the Assembly Room on July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was adopted, and here 11 years later in 1787 the U S Constitution was ratified. Throughout this day you will visit the many other buildings preserved from our Constitutional past, including The Liberty Bell, Christ Church and Burial Ground, The Betsy Ross House, and more.
Dinner tonight is aboard The “legendary” Moshulu, the world’s oldest and largest remaining square rigged sailing vessel. She is in fact the one and only restaurant venue in the world that is on a Tall Ship today. She is an award winning, AAA 4 Diamond rated Restaurant. (B,D)
