New Americans Tour of Philadelphia

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.
