Photo Ops With Philly Icons

In the gift shop in the Independence Visitor Center at Independence National Historical Park there are figures of three Philly icons that all say "Snap a Photo" at their base. There's Rocky Balboa, the Philly Phanatic of the Phillies baseball team, and Mr. Ben Franklin -- who has his own museum about a mile away.
