Travel Responsibly: As the region recovers from COVID-19, safety guidelines have evolved at attractions, restaurants, shops and hotels. Advance tickets or reservations remain recommended or necessary at many spots. Your best bet: Check online or call ahead.

Philadelphia is perfect for kids and families.

Whether it’s a morning at the Independence Seaport Museum or an afternoon at nearby Sesame Place in Bucks County, kids of all ages delight in everything the city has to offer.

Museums like the Please Touch Museum and The Franklin Institute merge education with play, while outdoor spaces like Franklin Square and Fairmount Park encourage kids to appreciate the great outdoors. And that’s not to mention historic (and free!) landmarks like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall that people of every age should experience.

No matter what you choose, there’s no shortage of activities to occupy the whole clan for a day, a weekend, a week or longer.
