Now that my youngest baby is getting older and able to withstand being in the car a little longer, we’ve been taking more family trips on the East Coast. Philadelphia is one of our favorite places to visit because there is so much to do for children of all ages. A few months ago we took a trip to see the rivalry of Geno’s vs. Pat’s in their Philly Cheese Steaks. While this would have made a perfect day trip sans kids, we found that we needed to make a weekend out of it and decided it would be best to stay in Philly for the night.
There’s so much you can do in Philly for the weekend. Since my husband is the history buff, he opts for the historical attractions in Philadelphia like the Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, and the Declaration House, just to name a few. Philadelphia is so rich in history, there is something new to see each time you go!
Since the kids may still be young to fully appreciate the historical aspects of Philadelphia, a trip to the Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse is on our list for our next weekend trip. The Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse in Philadelphia dates back to 1899 and is one of the oldest playgrounds in America! There is so much for kids to explore and let off some energy. There’s also the Please Touch Museum that seems like something we can all enjoy!
When it’s time to unwind and grab a bite to eat, there are fireside dining options where you can beat the cold weather and cozy up with your family and a great meal.
