Starting from


Philadelphia is home to the Continental Congress during the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin, and a multitude of historic sites that invites opportunities to focus on specific periods of time, and to digress with lectures on trades, science, and arts. Philadelphia student tours may include a discussion about the importance of Benjamin Franklin’s success in courting France to bankroll our quest for independence, and how that may serve as a timeless lesson on international diplomacy and business negotiation in today's age , and a testament to the powers of persuasion in life. Philadelphia became the nation’s first capital and was the largest city by population, its buildings that remain today built with profits from wartime trade. A regal looking George Washington would exit services at Christ Church near Market Street, organ music spilling out the entrance, to a crowd of onlookers who parted before him in reverence. A visit to Carpenter’s Hall, on beautifully manicured grounds, offers a chance to delve into Philadelphia’s role in the American Revolution, as well as the way in which people of certain occupations interacted then and today. Originally constructed as a meeting place for carpenters to exchange architectural techniques and to hire employees, Carpenters' Hall hosted the First Continental Congress in 1774, attended by George Washington, where he was pressed into command of the future Continental Army. Other historic sites include The 1740 Betsy Ross House, The 1787 Bishop White House, the Liberty Bell, The National Constitution Center. A visit to Old City Hall, home of the first Supreme Court of the US, offers an opportunity to discuss the US legal system, made indelible by standing in the same building where our first justices met. The U.S. Mint tour opens the door for a discussion about the history of coins as currency and the evolution of paper currency. A visit to Chinatown for lunch is possible. Philadelphia’s Chinatown was borne in the 1860s when Lee Fong’s Laundry opened for business, and the first restaurant, Mei-Hsian Lou, opened in 1870 and is commemorated by a plaque on Race Street. 5 Go Educational Tours
