As our hostel has a curfew in which you have to be out at a certain time we fought our way through the showers and headed off for our day in Philedelphia. We stopped along the way to have some breakfast and come up with a plan of what we wanted to see and how to do it all.

We decided on seeing the Liberty Bell first and it was a very historical icon well worth the long line to see. The bell itself is massive! We then ventured across the street to Independance Hall and were able to catch a tour of the House of Congress. We were not able to get tickets into Independance Hall itself as the tickets had all gone so quickly but it was still a good experience to look in the facility. We saw copies of the declaration of independance where it was signed and this copy was not so faded so you were able to read it if you wanted to.

We then headed up to Greyhound to book tickets for our bus to New York and then tried to run some errands all with no luck before we decided to call it a day and head back to the hostel. We went out for a light dinner and met a family visiting Washington DC and were walked around the block and back to our hostel by their son who was more than sick of spending time with his family. It was really quite sweet of him and a funny story of how we met some randoms in a restraunt!
