    We love this place. It is a must see for sure. HIke the Turkey path while you are there. Beautiful water falls along the way. It is a bit challenging so watch your children real well.

    One of my favorite places to visit as a kid! I wouldn't call the Philadelphia Zoo a typical zoo. They have more than the typical variety of animals and attractions. Amazingly entertaining for the entire family!

    This place is absolutely beautiful. Warning: not for your "beginner" hiker You are literally climbing makeshift stairs up and down waterfalls. Lots of hills, bring plenty of water. This is my own personal shot here, so lots of awesome photo opportunities. tons of waterfalls. It's breath taking (and a workout [;)
