On March 22, 2019 Troop 125 went to Philadelphia, one of America’s very historical cities. When we first got to Philadelphia, we went to the US Mint where we learned how coins are made. Next, we went to the Franklin Institute one of the top science museums in the country.
On Saturday we first went to Independence Hall, this is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and where the US Constitution was made. After that we went to The Liberty Bell which was very cool to see. Next, we went to The National Constitutional Center which had three great activities. Also, we went to the Independence National Historic Park where many historical meetings and events went down. Lastly, we went to the Ben Franklin Museum where we explored Ben Franklin’s life and legacy.
The last day in Philadelphia we went to the Eastern State Penitentiary which was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world. Finally, the last place we went to was the Rocky Steps which was a great site to see to end off this memorable trip.
