Got back from a trip to Philly where I visited where all the country's greatness began. I took a ton of pics, but thought i'd share some here with everyone.

Went to a few other places as well, links to threads:

Eastern State Penitentiary
Battleship New Jersey

Carpenter's Hall



Independance Hall





Philadelphia Court



Declaration and Constitution Signing Room

Cool pics!

What did you use to take them with? How long was the wait to get in?

I've got a samsuang s85 that i've had for a few years. Its nothing special, but takes good pics.

As far as the line, I waited maybe 20 minutes. You had to get tickets for timed tours at the vistiors center. They open at 8:30 and I got there about 8:15. I walked around a bit and took some pics then got in the line forming. Probably only 10 people in front of me. Once the vistor center openned I waited for only a couple minutes. Most people went on the early tour, but I elected to take the 4:30 tour and do other things. Plus I had to pick up my dad from the airport around noon and he wanted to see it too. I think they sold out of tickets (they were free) around 10am becuase thats when I heard lots of people complaining.

No, there were a couple of guys with STOP OBAMA signs preaching around the vistor center though.

Yep, got a pic of the outside. Pics inside were a no-no. They had this crate full of pennys that looked like more money than I've made in my entire life.
