With the Kids
Nothing says “time for a break” quite like ice cream. (1) The Franklin Fountain is an old-fashioned soda parlor that fits well with Philly’s history-focused tours. We suggest ordering the Mt. Vesuvius, mixed with a brownie, hot fudge, malt powder and whipped cream. Get to the (2) Adventure
Aquarium early and head straight for the Shark Realm. The entire family will be awed by the 360- degree views of the ocean’s most feared creature. Keep the memories long after you leave by “adopting” a marine animal on your way out, complete with a certificate, photo and plush toy. There truly is no better way to see all of Philly than from (3) The
Observation Deck. The touch-screen viewing boards enhance the experience, but the views really speak for themselves.
