Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Within the city,  you will have to choose where you’ll spend your time carefully. There are more attractions than you can fit into a typical vacation. The Franklin Institute and the Philadelphia Museum of Art both are impressive museums, but they can each take a full day to explore. The Please Touch Museum and Betsy Ross House are smaller and easier to digest if you have little ones. The Adventure Aquarium is just across the Delaware River and the Philadelphia Zoo will impress. Costs can add up quickly, but look into purchasing The Philadelphia Pass which offers discounted admission prices when you are visiting multiple attractions in the city.

Outside of the city, there are some really unique parks that families love. Hersheypark in Hershey Pennsylvania is a candy-themed wonderland of rides. Discount tickets are available on their website and purchasing at the gate will cost you more. There is also Sesame Place, a Sesame Street themed amusement park geared towards the smallest vacationers. Lancaster, also known as Pennsylvania Dutch country, is worth a day’s visit as well and children love the little Dutch Wonderland park that is geared towards preschoolers.
