Liberty Bell

Originally installed to alert the townspeople of the daily news announcements and the lawmakers to begin their meetings, this historic US artifact now represents liberty and independence. This is an excellent spot to take a quick break – hop off your e-bike, rest your legs, and learn a bit more about American history!

Philadelphia Museum of Art

Be sure to take a moment on your electric-bike tour to admire Philly’s Museum of Art! Home to over 240,000 paintings, sculptures, photographs and more, the establishment is also commonly known for its stairs that were featured in the 1976 hit movie “Rocky.”

Betsy Ross House

Although historians have disputed claims that this is the location where Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, the red-brick-clad building still provides a fascinating insight into the life of an 18th-century American woman settler. Pop by on your e-bike for a quick pic, or spend a bit longer taking one of the many tours offered to guide you through the house.

Penn's Landing

There’s always something exciting happening at Penn’s Landing! It’s a hot-spot for festivals, events, shopping, movie nights, and so much more. Cruise by the crowds enjoying the skating rinks, or lock your bike, grab a bite to eat and peoplewatch a bit!
