Share Your Favorite Pennsylvania Tourist Attractions

Pennsylvania family vacations would not be complete without visiting some of these great Pennsylvania tourist attractions! Share your favorite places to visit in Pennsylvania or read what other families are doing with their road trip plans.

Pennsylvania family vacations can include sporting events, trips to amusement parks, or time spent outdoors in local parks. There are many places to find hiking opportunities and you won't have trouble finding places for the children to get out of the RV and burn off some energy. The amusement parks and community festivals give access to carnival style foods, games and of course roller coasters.

Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, Pennsylvania

My favorite place to visit in Pennsylvania is Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, Pennsylvania. It's a 1,200 acre garden designed by Pierre du Pont. There are massive trees, rose gardens, a large conservatory, children's gardens, life-size tree houses, an Italian water garden, and beautiful meadows.

When my family and I visit Longwood we spend the entire day there. The gardens include a fine dining restaurant, so an entire day's trip is easily spent there. My favorite attraction is the Italian water gardens. It's so quiet and serene to stand on the bridge and watch the fountains as they soar above you.

Longwood Gardens also hosts many musical artists and symphonies. Last year, my husband and I attended a night concert in the gardens that showcased the Philadelphia Symphony orchestra followed by a firework and fountain show. It was unforgettable. Longwood Gardens is a family-friendly place to visit.

There is plenty of room for our energetic son to run and play. Being outside in the fresh air and seeing the beautiful flowers is such a great way to spend a day as a family. The conservatory has a ballroom, fancy fountain works, an orchid room, and a water lily garden. My husband and I also particularly enjoyed the Bonsai exhibit.

There is an interesting gift shop where you can buy some of the flowers you have seen in the gardens, as well as a children's section to buy kits to teach your children about growing flowers. Longwood Gardens is the best way to spend a day or two in Pennsylvania. http://www.longwoodgardens.org
