Here is a collection of some fun trips within driving distance of the Philadelphia and suburbs area.
This year they added a Tree Top Adventure Park. I can't wait to try that out!
We took our first road trip of the summer to the Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensburg, NJ. My son is very interested (well, almost obsessed) in Minecraft right now
and my daughter collects rocks from everywhere that we go. So, this trip was an ideal choice.
There is also a nice hiking trail that leads back to a beautiful waterfall.
There is no entrance fee and the park is open all year.
I bought a membership to this museum last year and we more than got our money's worth from it! When you purchase a membership, there is a reciprocal agreement with many other science museums. We used our membership to visit the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown and The Maryland Science Center in Baltimore.
Update: We just went again last week. The link is updated to the post about our trip.
