City Tavern and Old Philadelphia

Walk the Streets where Benjamin Franklin lived and and the Continental Congress met. All of old Philadelphia is extremely walkable and fairly close together- Christ's Church, ( where Franklin, Adams, and Washington all had pews, 

Franklin's Grave and Printing shop, and of course the Fabulous City Tavern, where the continental congress mingled and created our country.
