Betsy Ross House, Philadelphia Pennsylvania


Betsy Ross House, Philly
Originally uploaded by JoeDuck
Betsy Ross was a Quaker revolutionary who was commissioned by George Washington to create and produce a new flag for the US war of independence - an American Flag.

Ross' house still stands in downtown Philadelphia. During summer months actors perform and interact with tourists throughout the downtown area. Active walkers can take in the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross House, Ben Franklin Square, and many more amazing sights from American's Revolutionary past.

Tip: Go early to the National History Center to get tickets for Liberty Bell and Independence Hall tours, and then build your day around them.
