Robert gave you the straight stuff. There are several close. I personally used the Autopark at Olde City garage. Do not believe you will find any free parking close by. However there is a SEPTA station close if you park elsewhere and come in by public transportation. Also, city tour buses (double decker commercial), start and stop at Independence NHP, so if you want to see more of the city with a "hop on, hop off" tour, you can include your visit in that.

Q:
Can you go into Independence Hall to see the Liberty Bell without participating in the tour? A couple of us just want to see the bell without doing the tour because our son has autism and it's too hard for him to go on a tour. Thanks!
A:
Yes the Liberty Bell isn't inside Independence Hall; it's in a separate building across the street that doesn't cost or require tickets. The tour is of Independence Hall only.
