Liberty Bell Center, Philadelphia

The iconic Liberty Bell is an emblem of American Independence, and holds a symbolic place in history as the 'justice bell' that heralded significant events.

The iconic Liberty Bell is an emblem of American Independence, and holds a symbolic place in history as the 'justice bell' that heralded significant events. The inscription on the bell reads "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof". Once a chime for public announcements from above the Pennsylvania State House (now Independence Hall), it became a public symbol of freedom when talk went around that it was rung on July 4, 1776 after the Second Continental Congress's vote for independence. It is now housed in the Liberty Bell Center on the Independence Mall, where visitors can get an up close look at the 2000-pound bell and its mysterious crack.

Admission is free, and it's best to reach early in the morning to avoid the queues. The Liberty Bell Center displays documents and images pertaining to the Liberty Bell's history from its casting to cracking, touring across the country after the Civil War, its adoption as the symbol of the suffrage movement, and final placement at the center in Philadelphia. At the end of the tour, you finally get to see the Liberty Bell. You cannot lick it though, it's barricaded.
