Liberty Bell Center
Many folks recognize the Liberty Bell—and its famous crack—as an iconic symbol of American independence. But what’s also remarkable is its home at Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell Center, next to the former Pennsylvania State House (now Independence Hall), where both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were signed.
Statue of Liberty Liberty Island, New York
New York’s iconic neoclassical sculpture has welcomed immigrants to the States since it was erected in 1886. But public access to the famously crowned statue has been off and on since the 1980s, and it most recently closed last fall due to infrastructure damages from Hurricane Sandy. Good news: The National Park Service confirmed the statue will reopen to the public on July 4 this year.
