The Historic District spans from the Delaware River to 7th Street and from Vine Street to Lombard Street. This area is the heart of Philadelphia's original city and is rich in history and culture. As the location of the signing of the United States' Declaration of Independence in 1776, it is the perfect place to be on Independence Day.

  • Elfreth's Alley

  • Christ Church
