If you’ve never visited Trekaroo, I recommend you get yourself to this fun and friendly website that’s all about family travel. You can browse reviews of things to do with kids written by other parents, get tips on traveling with kids, and even book your trip. Sign up for your own “passport” page and bookmark items from the site or write reviews yourself (check out my passport here). Another fun feature is the ability to make and share lists of activities.
Like any website worth its salt these days, they also have a blog, and here you’ll find the KidsMobile, which “stops” every week in a different city offering lists and tips from parent bloggers who’ve been there, done that, and likely written about it. This week the city is Philadelphia, and I was lucky enough to join with some other great writers to share my insider suggestions. So without further ado, here’s the full KidsMobile post. If you’re looking for great things to do in Philly with your family, look no further than these lists!
