Few destinations capture the spirit of Memorial Day quite like our very own Independence Hall.
The building that housed the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 is an architectural ode to our nation’s freedom and those who defend the country’s independence.
In honor of Memorial Day, we’d like to take a moment to remember and commemorate the courageous U.S. soldiers who have fallen defending our country.
Today’s holiday also marks the unofficial start to the summer season (the first day of summer is June 21), and a great time to welcome longer days and balmy weather. It’s time to look forward to sunny afternoons, alfresco dining, park lounging, beer gardens, cold drinks, Phillies games and more.
We’ll be back on Tuesday with our regular schedule of bringing your the top events, tips and more.
Enjoy the holiday, Philadelphia!
