For those looking for something a little different, take a tour of Eastern State Pen. A self guided tour will show you the cells the inmates lived in, and give you an idea of what their lives were really like. Don't forget to check out Al Capone's cell; image the difference between that one and all the rest! My tour was a specially arranged one - I got to go in some private areas that you can't see on the regular tour. They included the chapel, the operating room, and Cellblock 11! These areas are not as restored as some areas, and you had to wear a hardhat in one cellblock; the experience was great!ESP also does Halloween tours.Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. Open 10 am - 5 pm, $12 adults, $8 kids.
