Family Friendly Philly

Kids and adults alike will enjoy viewing the lions, pandas, giraffes, rhinos, condors, snakes and other fauna at the Philadelphia Zoo - including a hot air balloon ride that gives you a birds eye view! The Please Touch Museum encourages little ones to learn through play in exhibits like a cityscape where tots can shop for groceries, construct a building or examine x-rays. Take a special family tour, participate in a children's art class or take a self-guided family tour through exhibits like the Arms and Armor galleries at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Franklin Square Park playground offers the Liberty Carousel, miniature golf, and two playgrounds under a canopy of trees, in one of Philadelphia's oldest neighborhoods.
