Discover Pennsylvania in your Philadelphia rental car
Are you looking for a place to visit that's historic and urban, retro but modern? Hop in a Philadelphia rental car and discover the city. This locale has a lot to offer, from museums and ball parks to exciting tours and sight seeing. Here are a few things to check of your list when visiting Philadelphia:
Please Touch Museum
If you're bringing kids on your vacation, you know how difficult it can be to get them to keep their hands to themselves, especially when in public places. There's no need to worry about that at the Please Touch Museum. Children ages seven and under will have a blast exploring the interesting activities here. With exhibits like "Wonderland," "River Adventures" and "Flight Fantasy," your family will have plenty to do. Everything has bright colors and there are many moving parts that your little ones will love to move and play with. They might even need a nap after all the excitement!
Do you consider yourself another Sherlock Holmes? You'll definitely want to check out Watson Adventures. This innovative company runs scavenger hunts through Philadelphia. You can choose indoor or outdoor quests (think of the weather!) and even a theme, like ghosts, food, wizard school and even trivia. All you need to do is show up at the beginning location and you'll soon find yourself traipsing through town to find and identify different aspects of your scavenger list! This is a really great way to get to know the area and learn a bit about its history.
Drive your Philadelphia rental car to 100 East Northwestern Avenue and you'll find this luscious green space full of cool plants and structures to spend time around. In the arboretum are plenty of gardens and sculptures, including the garden railway and stick structures, both of which are whimsical and reminiscent of fairies and otherworldly creatures. The space is also an excellent spot for birders as there are many species of avian creatures that call it their home. If you're looking for more of an adrenaline rush, head to the Out on a Limb tree adventure. This awesome walk is suspended 50 feet above the ground so visitors can stroll among the treetops. When you're feeling tired, take a break in a giant birds nest and snuggle up with some oversized robins eggs. If you're ready to climb, check out the Squirrel Scramble, a ropes course that is meant to allow you a great view of the woods and land below.
