Indoor Play Spaces
IMG_3684For most play places and museums in the city is it is cheaper to buy season passes then it is to go twice a year. Make sure you look into that first. There are a lot of great indoor play options for rainy days, winter months, or if you just want to beat the heat. The Please Touch Museum is great but avoid it on the weekends at all cost. The Franklin Institute will grow with your family as your kids discover new sections every year and don’t try to get through it all in one day. And if you kids are new walkers but you need to get out of the house Duck, Duck, Goose and My Little Adventures are our top picks.

There are great things to do on either side of the waterfront. You can drive over to Camden or take the ferry to check out Battleship, NJ, a River Sharks Ballgame, Adventure Aquarium, or the Camden’s Children’s Garden.
