Imagine post-colonial Philadelphia and you would be in Society Hill. Featuring Federal-style townhouses and Trinity homes, Society Hill has some of the most beautiful residences in the city. Surrounded by historic Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the National Constitution Center, Society Hill has historic charm. Touring the Independence National Historic Park could take a day on its own, but leave time to explore side streets dotted with boutiques, cafes, and local landmarks like City Tavern and colonial-era Christ Church.
