Took the kids to Philly yesterday, and despite a 3-hour drive in the rain, it was quite fun! We went to check out the Star Wars exhibit at the Franklin Institute and decided to take in the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey, just 5 minutes away over the Ben Franklin Bridge.
We should have made a weekend of it and stayed overnight at a hotel, but I hadn’t prepared for it (i.e. researched the Internet for the best deals) and it’s a short enough drive that I couldn’t see spending the extra money. We spent enough as it was on admissions, parking and food ($200), but we got in free at the Franklin Institute through our Maryland Science Center membership and both places were worth the money and the drive.
I’ll post an actual page with details on the two attractions in the next day or so, but for now, enjoy the Flickr photos!
