Day 1: Depart aboard our deluxe motorcoach for the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. We begin our trip with a visit to the BRAND NEW MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. Enjoy a journey through the remarkable story of America’s founding. Original artifacts, immersive settings and dynamic theaters will take you on a journey from the roots of conflict to the outbreak of fighting, and from the bold Declaration of Independence through the long years of warfare and the creation of a new nation in their engaging galleries. 2 nights accommodations at the HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS MIDTOWN located in the heart of downtown Philadelphia and within walking distance to a variety of shops and over 40 restaurants within 2 blocks. Welcome dinner marks our arrival.

Day 2: We’re off to the fabulous PHILADELPHIA FLOWER SHOW - “FLOWER POWER”. The Philadelphia Flower Show is America’s largest horticultural event, which attracts 250,000 guests each year. The garden and floral designers will show that horticultural design is itself a form of art. Enjoy acres of gardens, thousands of displays, more than 180 shops in the Marketplace, interactive exhibits and more. This show is sure to be amazing! Off for our INDEPENDENCE HALL AFTER HOURS TOUR. We will be met by a historic ‘1776 Townsperson’ who will greet us for our 18th Century dinner at CITY TAVERN.

A meal choice is required with registration for the dinner at City Tavern. The choices are: Turkey Pot Pie, Beef Bourguignon, or Salmon.

Then we are off to Independence Hall where we will sneak in and eavesdrop on Jefferson, Adams and Franklin as they discuss the Declaration of Independence. What a great night!

Day 3: This morning we join our local costumed guide for a GUIDED CITY TOUR. Take in the city sights highlighting the Ben Franklin Parkway, Center City, Chinatown, City Hall, Society Hill and the Historic District. We head for home memories of our time in historic Philadelphia.
