Any time of year is the right time to visit Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is home to hundreds of attractions, cultural institutions, historic sites, museums, and special events, which are available for free pick-up or purchase at the Independence Visitor Center. 

In the colder months, outdoor spaces are transformed into winter wonderland, with two outdoor ice skating rinks and other programming along the Delaware River Waterfront and in Center City. 

City Hall Visitor Center offers daily Interior Tour and Tower Tours (pictured above) throughout the year.
