Hello all and welcome to the blog for Day Three. Today we traveled throughout Historic Philadelphia.

Our day began with a walking tour. We saw many sites like the afore-pictured LIberty Bell, Independence Hall, the old Presidential Mansion, and the site of Ben Franklin’s old home.

After the tour we broke up into small groups for a scavenger hunt across Philadelphia. It was a fast paced exciting competition.

We then had lunch at the Bourse. The Bourse had many different food options for the students to choose from and shops for them to patronize.

After lunch we went to the National Constitution Center, a museum dedicated to the U.S. Constitution. There we saw a 20 minute live performance show and many exhibits.

After that we walked to Campo’s for real Philadelphia Cheese Steaks. I can personally say that they were delicious.

After dinner we took a Ghost Tour throughout the old city. It was most certainly an interesting and eerie experience. Believe it or not, tomorrow we will be on our way home. Our exciting journey is almost at its end.
