For those with an affinity for art and culture, take a lovely stroll through Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, a space entirely bedecked in mosaics, or visit the iconic Rocky Statue and Stand, a classic movie landmark that the children would love.

Unleash your children's creativity at the Please Touch Museum, a museum dedicated entirely to kids that encourages the power of learning through play. Finally, quench your thirst for knowledge and spark scientific curiosity in your children with a visit to The Franklin Institute, a premier center for science education.

Whether your family are history buffs, art lovers, outdoor enthusiasts or fans of the weird and wonderful, Philadelphia offers it all. Each day of your visit is sure to be brimming with learning, excitement and unabashed family fun!

When to visit

Deciding when to visit Philadelphia largely depends on your family's preferences. If you're partial to pleasant weather and blossoms in bloom, springtime (from March to May) is an absolute delight. The city comes alive as nature awakens from winter slumber, with Philadelphia's cherry blossoms being a sight to behold. The weather makes exploring on foot an enjoyable venture.

Early autumn (September and October) is also a favourable time, offering affordable deals on accommodation due to lesser tourist inflow. If you're a family who loves winter sports and snow, January and February might be your pick. However, do bear in mind that summer months (June to August) might make for sweaty travels due to high heat and larger crowds. Ultimately, Philadelphia welcomes you and your family year-round, ready to serve up memorable experiences.
