Philadelphia is the home to history, detailed architecture, and a plethora of things to see and do. A day in Philadelphia is not nearly enough time to explore the whole city. What if you only had 24 hours? Here is what we did in a little under 24 hours in Philadelphia.
According to old American tradition, the Liberty Bell let out a chime that changed the world on July 8, 1776. The bell summoned citizens of Philadelphia as it rang from the tower of Independence Hall. The citizens of Philadelphia would become the first to hear the public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.
One of the things we love about traveling with our children is making memories. As we have learned with our soon to be 17-year-old, time is precious. Spending time with family is our main goal. We love to find unique places, different from just the run of the mill vacation to make it that much more memorable. For example, my husband would rather take a gamble on a hole in the wall local restaurant. He always hopes of finding a hidden jewel versus a chain restaurant anytime.
Kings Dominion KOA Completes The Kings Dominion Experience
With our recent trip to Kings Dominion, we needed to find a place to stay for a couple of nights. Since we live four hours away, we wanted to find a place near the park. We wanted to be nearby so we could check into the day before attending the park. That way, we could be at the gate as early as possible. Knowing it would be a late night (since we would stay all day), we figured we would spend the night after a day at the park, as well.
