Of course there is Independence Mall area. It is free an this time of year I can't imagine the security lines being very busy. It is very well protected after 9-11.
Hmmm? Weekend, potentially nice warm weather (forcasted high of 72); expect a line for the Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall. Although, the lines won't be as long as they are during the summer.
Worth noting: the current security configuration requires one to go through the Liberty Bell Center before touring Independence Hall. One can not tour Independence Hall before going thorugh the Bell Center. Although there is no admission charge for either of these 2 facilities; the National Park Service, during peak periods, may require tickets before entering the security screening area (which is located along the south side of Market Street between 5th & 6th Streets and until Oct. of 2003 was where the Liberty Bell once was housed). Tickets can be obtained at the Independence Visitor's Center located at the corner of 6th and Market Streets; across the street from the Liberty Bell Center and the security screening area.
Also worth noting: Poe's house is located along a border-line
area of the city. Should you decide to visit it; don't wander too far north of Spring Garden Street.
