From world-class museums to under-the-radar playgrounds, Philly doesn’t skimp on kid-friendly activities. That might come as a surprise to visitors of Philadelphia; kid-friendly fun isn’t usually the first thing that leaps to mind when thinking about the birthplace of our country.
But locals know that Philadelphia offers a range of activities for children of all ages (both history-related and not). Where else can kids visit the National Constitution Center, splash in a Center City fountain, zip through the trees on an obstacle course, and gush over animals at our country’s oldest zoo?

Behold: The best things to do in Philadelphia with kids.
