I have to say it lived up to my high expectations. I kept thinking about the people like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Washington and everyone else from that first continental congress who had been in that very room and made such important decisions regarding America's future. As dorky as it sounds, I was honestly moved being in the building.
This is a cool view of the tower Sean took while we were waiting for our tour to begin.
Our next stop was the Liberty Bell, which was also really cool. I didn't know it was the bell that was rung to summon the people of Philadelphia for the first reading of the Declaration of Independence. Little facts like that make an old, cracked bell a lot more interesting!
