2016 Best Tour of Philadelphia

The Union League of Philadelphia

If you don't have what it takes to join one of Philadelphia's most prestigious clubs, just gather $150 ($225 on weekends) and up to 20 of your friends and enjoy an in-depth tour of the entire building, including the little-known Lincoln Memorial Room, the Civil War mini-museum and the hallowed library, where bibliophiles will geek out. Whatever you do, don't wear jeans or sneakers.
