If you've never explored the city with your family, start at the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market Streets.

Here you can get up-to-the-minute information on what's open, what's closed and what's new. There are plenty of experts on hand to help you with maps and literature to lots of exciting places in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey area.

High up on everyone's list will be the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the National Constitution Center - all in Independence National Park; the Adventure Aquarium and Battleship New Jersey on the Camden Waterfront; and the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Academy of Natural Sciences - all on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
