Want to Take a Walk?

Liberty Bell by Kim WoodIf you have a little spare time Thursday morning, please consider joining us for a photowalk through historic Philadelphia. We’ll be meeting at 8:oo AM in the Hyatt Regency Penn’s Landing lobby and will be grabbing breakfast either before or after the walk – feel free to join us and help decide. This will be a relaxed, casual walk with friends and cameras, and we may very well make it up as we go along.

The route will likely take us past:

  • The Liberty Bell, which was called the Independence Bell until 1837, when an anti-slavery group adopted it as a symbol of freedom based on the inscription, “Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the inhabitants thereof.
  • Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was debated and adopted, and which originally housed the Liberty Bell.
  • The Benjamin Franklin Bridge
  • The Philadelphia Waterfront which includes Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial and Independence Seaport Museum.

We expect to walk at least a couple miles, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Click here to view the REBCPHL map for more location details.

Tickets are required for Independence Hall, so please let us know if you plan to attend in the comments below.

Why haven't you RSVP'd yet?

    I would love to do but we’re flying out that morning. Not sure what time the flight leaves but I know there won’t be enough time for a photo walk…I’m bummed.

    Bummer about Monika and I not being able to take this photo walk with you all. We are planning to do some exploring Tuesday since we get in pretty early in the day, so maybe we’ll do our own version of your fun photo walk.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    You’ll have to get your photo walk in a different time, Dan.
