The best place to start on a journey through historic Philadelphia is the Independence Visitor Center. Located One North Independence Mall West (or 6th and Market Streets), this is where you can pick up tickets to numerous attractions throughout the city, including tickets to Independence Hall. The concierge and guides there are knowledgeable about not only the historical parts of Philadelphia, but the city in general. Beyond the practical use of this visitor center, it has also become an attraction in itself since it opened in 2001 with its cafes, gift shops and informative videos on the history of this area.
