Who knew you could have a good time in prison? Well, at the Eastern State Penitentiary, you definitely can. A visit here provides a fascinating insight into the lives of its inmates when it was Philadelphia’s most important correctional facility and one of the most famous in the world. Al Capone did all he could to avoid ending up here, but with this excellent combination offer, you’ll be glad you got to visit. And to make things even better, our bus takes you right there.

Once you’ve been released (don’t worry, you can leave when you want) from the penitentiary, hop back on the bus and continue exploring Philadelphia. As on of the United States’ oldest cities, it’s got more history than you can shake a stick at. Among the places we recommend hopping off are Betsy Ross House and the Museum of the American Revolution, before heading to see the Liberty Bell itself in Independence National Historical Park.
