The Philadelphia Zoo

42-acres of unsurpassed natural beauty and wildlife make the Philadelphia Zoo (America’s first zoo) a must-see adventure! There is so much to see and do here, you could spend entire days traversing gorgeous wildlife trails and mingling with exotic species of all types.  Here are just a couple of attractions that await you at the zoo…

Valley Forge National Historical Park

Valley Forge is 3,600 acres of rolling hills and gorgeous trails — a perfect place for runners, bicyclists, picnickers and history buffs of all ages. This 75-mile expanse connects Philadelphia to the majestic Appalachian Trail, and brings more than 225 years of fascinating American history to present-day visitors.

Here, the history of the Continental Army at Valley Forge is brought to life by the remnants of the military encampments; rows of cannons in Artillery Park; the soldiers’ log huts; earthen fortifications… you really have to experience it to fully appreciate Army’s momentous struggle at this historic site.

Statues and monumements throughout the park remind visitors of our nation’s rich heritage, while the pleasure of fly-fishing, biking and hiking amidst glorious dogwood trees are among the present-day amenities to enjoy.

For more information, pricing and hours of operation, visit the Valley Forge National Historical Park website, or call directly at (610) 783-1099.

These are just a few ideas for Spring Break in Philadelphia — in truth there are literally hundreds of ideas for entertainment in this great city… WAY to many to list here. One resource for keeping up with current and upcoming events in the area is Philadelphia’s Official Travel & Tourism Site — they always have the latest and greatest events taking place in Philly.

If you plan to spend Spring Break exploring Philadelphia with the family, consider a Philadelphia  car or van service to transport your group to and from all the exciting places and events available to visitors and Spring Breakers. If you’re travelling with the kids, the trip is so much more enjoyable if you’re not reaching over to the back seat trying to break up sibling squabbles while navigating heavy traffic at the same time, (if you’re a parent, you know this scenario!)

Or if you’re away on break from college, you and your friends can enjoy the tour and live it up all you like while leaving the driving responsibility to an experienced driver who’s familiar with the area’s attractions, including the streets and best travel routes to get wherever you want to go.

Check out how easy it is to get an a chauffeured Philadelphia SUV or Van service to take over the driving duties…

Quotes

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
