  1. Explore the "ghost structure" in Franklin Court. Will you be the first one in your group to find the remains of the privy (toilet)?
  2. See the Liberty Bell. Look at the iconic crack, take a bucket list photo, and take a minute to really look at the inscription. Can you find any words that are spelled differently?
  3. Walk in Ona Judge's footsteps at the Presidents' House Site. Where was she going?
  4. Find the eternal flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution in Washington Square. Take a photo or video and share it on your favorite social media channel.
  5. Pose like your favorite statue and take a photo. Will it be George Washington (in front of Independence Hall) or maybe the Signer (5th and Chestnut)?
  6. Find the silhouette wall in the Independence Visitor Center exhibit area. Take a selfie with the silhouette you find most fascinating.
  7. Get your National Park Service passport stamped and ponder the age-old dilemma: should you get stamps for places you haven't been to?
  8. Find the two lion statues behind the Merchants' Exchange Building. Can you spot the differences?
