American Heritage

The tour stops along the way include the Old City area, Betsy Ross's House, and Elfreths Alley the oldest continually residential street in the US. You will also walk to the Penns Landing Area and get wonderful views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Delaware River. On your way back you will be walking through the Society Hill area and you will also be walking along South Street which offers interesting street life and a funky and diverse environment. If your interest is in architecture, history, or if you just like to take pictures of people on the street, all of those photographic subjects will be available to you. There are lots of Philadelphia icons along our route and anyone interested in photography should be able to benefit from this tour. You can even stop for a Soft Pretzel with mustard.
