THING TO DO

Take a "Bellfie"

Get it?  You know, like a selfie.

Don't miss this bucket list opportunity!
See the Liberty Bell. Look at the iconic crack, take a photo to prove that you stood beside the famous icon of liberty, and then take a minute to really think about the inscription on the Liberty Bell, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants Thereof." Abolitionists, woman suffrage advocates, and civil rights leaders all really thought about those words when they used the Liberty Bell to call attention to their causes. Curious about the crack? Ask a friendly park ranger.
