Today enjoy a Philadelphia City Tour to see the Most Historic Square Mile in America featuring Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the National Constitution Center. Visit Independence Hall, the site where the United States Constitution was debated and adopted & the setting for the 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence.  Later visit the National Constitution Center, the only museum dedicated to the United States Constitution.

Day 3 - Tuesday, 6/7/2022 - Valley Forge
This morning travel northwest of Philadelphia to tour Valley Forge National Historical Park which preserves our nation’s history and tells the story of the Continental Army during the winter of 1777-78.  On December 19, 1777, George Washington led a weary Continental Army into Valley Forge. For the next six months, the militiamen came together to form a true army. See the soldier huts and the original house that was once General Washington’s Headquarters at Valley Forge (referred to as the Pentagon of the Revolution).  Enjoy the rest of the day at your own pace. - Breakfast
Day 4 - Wednesday, 6/8/2022 - Brandywine Mansions
Today enjoy a visit to two fantastic DuPont mansions in the Brandywine Valley, both elegant estates in their own way. Drive south into Delaware to tour the opulent Nemours Mansion & Gardens, the former estate of Alfred DuPont.  Using his vast fortune from inventing smokeless gunpowder, Alfred built this classical French Chateau in 1910 and filled the 105 rooms with antiques, art and tapestries from the 1700s. Later tour beautiful Longwood Gardens, the former estate of Pierre DuPont who purchased the property to save the arboretum from being sold for lumber in 1906 and made it his private estate into the 1930s.  He spared no expense in adding extensively to the property. Today it’s one of the premier botanical gardens in the US and consists of 1,100 acres of gardens, woodlands and meadows in the Brandywine Valley. - Breakfast
Day 5 - Thursday, 6/9/2022 - Hershey / Amish
This morning travel west through the beautiful countryside & arrive in Hershey, the town chocolate built.  Visit Hershey’s Chocolate World to learn about and smell the delicious transformation from tropical rainforest cocoa bean to Hershey’s famous chocolate. Chocolate samples will help you decide which Hershey’s goods to bring home in addition to your classic favorites. This afternoon step back in time in the tranquil heart of Pennsylvania Amish Country. The horse & buggy remains the primary form of transportation and windmills dot the landscape.  The Pennsylvania Amish of Lancaster County are America’s oldest Amish settlement. Thousands still live a centuries-old ‘Plain’ lifestyle. Visit an Amish Farm & House to learn about their faith, culture, distinctive dress and way of life that forbids the use of electricity or telephones in the home. Enjoy a traditional Amish Family Style Farewell Dinner where great food just keeps coming. Maybe bring home popular Amish goods such as Shoofly Pie or a handmade quilt. Return to Philadelphia after dinner. - Breakfast - Dinner
