A self-guided journey through the city’s must-visit attractions for new citizens
- Prepping for the U.S. citizenship test is no small task, but Philadelphia’s self-guided New Americans Tour makes learning easier — and a whole lot more fun.
- The city contains approximately half the answers to the 100-question citizenship test study. This means aspiring citizens and others students of U.S. history can glean the knowledge they seek simply by paying visits to Philly’s historic sites and attractions.
- Best place to start: Philadelphia’s Historic District, the original city — and a very pedestrian-friendly one at that.
