Philadelphia, PA - Philly For the Entire Family, The Please Touch Museum is situated inside Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park, constructed during the l876 Centennial Exhibition. It offers kiddies a fun learning experience using interactive exhibitions, a renovated old-fashioned carousel, along with innovative art spaces and featured theater productions.
Parents and kids really enjoy the summertime Rock ‘n’ Roar concert events at the Philadelphia Zoo. Children of all ages have fun dancing to local performers while hearing to the sounds of the zoo’s incredible animal kingdom.
Yet another family activity in Philly is Once Upon A Nation, where young ones can receive a story flag from any storytelling bench at the 13 unique locations. The benches are manned by costumed interpreters that capture the kids’ interest in an amusing way by using historical facts as well as telling stories about the founding of our country.
Philly offers one of the best food scenes in the country, and the city's trademark cheesesteak sandwiches tend to be perfect for on-the-go families. The Reading Terminal Market offers a variety of local specialties provided by more than 80 merchants. And, in South Philly, the 9th Street Italian Market happens to be America’s oldest open-air market and featured in the Rock movies.
