Eating & Sleeping

The park sits in an urban area with many options for dining and lodging. There is something for everyone!



If you are looking for a taste of Philly, try a cheesesteak or a hoagie. Looking for a colonial dining experience? Satisfy your palate at City Tavern, a reconstruction of the tavern John Adams described as the "most genteel" in America. You can enjoy a bite at the cafe located inside the Independence Visitor Center, or speak with a Visitor Experience Associate for other dining suggestions.

Tip: Enjoy a Philly soft pretzel with yellow mustard - we eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and anytime in between!



A list of accommodations in the Philadelphia area shows the numerous options for lodging. The Thomas Bond House, a restored 18th century home now open as a Bed and Breakfast, sits adjacent to Welcome Park on the eastern end of Independence National Historical Park.
