Wat je gaat doen

This fun, story-filled, scenic walk begins outside of the Independence Visitor Center where we will gather before a brief visit to Ben Franklin's final resting place. There we will discover why the bridge was named after the Founding Father; share details about his fascinating life of contribution then begin our journey across the Delaware. As we walk, you will enjoy iconic views and hear some of the stories behind the people, purpose, courage and engineering behind the bridge's construction. You'll also learn about using the bridge for easy and inexpensive transportation to key spots you will want to return to visit on both sides of the bridge. Past the mid-point we will stop for rest, photos and Ben Franklin-inspired snacks! (Provided on this tour.) On the way back, the reward will be Philly views, sometimes a sunset, then a memorable, Instagram-worthy visit to a towering sculpture that honors Ben Franklin's most famous experiment!

I've been crossing the Ben Franklin Bridge on foot in all seasons for five years. During that time I've fallen in love with all that a walk across the bridge offers those who skip driving or taking the train to take the slow way across instead: the views, open space and deep breaths above the scenic Delaware; the chance to get up close to a Philly icon and epic structure built with pedestrians in mind. As a past contributor to Hidden City Philadelphia, teacher and writer for travel brands my walks turned into research about the bridge's history and now into a tour that celebrates its stories.

I enjoyed going on the tour. It was a nice day to be outside, walking around, which I would prefer instead of being in a classroom. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging, and the history of Pennsylvania was fascinating.

Maria was punctual, friendly, and effective in communicating some great stories about Ben Franklin and his bridge. We had a great time.
