Baseball lovers won't want to miss a visit to Citizens Bank Park. Situated in South Philadelphia by the Wells Fargo Center (where the Philadelphia 76ers and the Philadelphia Flyers play) and Lincoln Financial Field (home of the Philadelphia Eagles), Citizens Bank Park is where sports enthusiasts can watch a Philadelphia Phillies game. Property facilities range from food and merchandise concessions to an outdoor beer garden to an interactive kids baseball experience called The Yard.

Travelers highly recommend attending a Phillies game here, saying that there isn't a single bad seat in the venue. What's more, many rave about the ballpark's friendly and intimate atmosphere, as well as its clean grounds, ample parking and superb (albeit pricey) food and beverage vendors. For those who don't want to watch a game, visitors suggest paying for a ballpark tour.

Game ticket prices vary by event and seat category, while ballpark tours cost $10 for adults and $6 for seniors (65 and older) and children 14 and younger. Tour tickets must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance. Tours begin inside the Majestic Clubhouse Store and last about an hour and a half. Tour times vary depending on the season: From October to March (baseball's offseason), tours take place at 10:30 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; from April through September, tours are available at 10:30 a.m. (on non-game days) and at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (on evening game days) every day except Sunday.

Getting to Citizens Bank Park requires driving and parking in one of several on-site lots or using public transportation. Bus Nos. 4 and 17 make stops in the area, and NRG station (on SEPTA's Broad Street Line) sits within walking distance. Find out more by visiting the ballpark's website.

#1 Liberty Bell Center

Opposite Independence Hall, you'll find the Liberty Bell Center in Independence National Historical Park. Now residing in a huge glass gazebo, this 2,080-pound piece of history was once mounted in the belfry of Independence Hall. It was used to mark important historic events, most notably at the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. Historians believe the first crack developed in the early 1840s. Metal workers were tasked with repairing the bell in anticipation of George Washington's birthday in 1846. The repair was unsuccessful and the bell ceased to chime ever again.

Despite the long lines, recent visitors called this attraction a must-see for all Americans. They also suggested planning your visit first thing in the morning during the week.
