Day 1 - Philadelphia


Start your day with a trip to the Please Touch Museum (you'll need a car or a cab to get here). Then spend some time at the Philadelphia Zoo and the Franklin Institute. If your kids still have some energy after these visits, head to Lucky Strike Lanes for a round or two of bowling. For dinner, try Jones, a Stephen Starr restaurant with a retro vibe (and a great kids' menu). Finally, end your day with a Ghost Tour of Philadelphia.

Day 2 - Philadelphia


Start the day at Welcome Park, where the kids will have plenty to do and to learn. Then get some Philly cheesesteaks on South Street at Jim's Steaks. Head north again to the historic district and check out the Liberty Bell (which kids always enjoy) and the Philadelphia Doll Museum. If the kids -- and you -- need some play time, spend a few hours at Dave and Busters on the riverfront. For dinner, your kids will love a trip to the Hard Rock Cafe.
