Where should a family of 6 travel in southern Pennsylvania for a 3 day trip?
I'm thinking of doing a loop in Lancaster county, heading to Hershey, and may be ending up in Philadelphia. Thoughts? Opinions? Is there anything to do/see in Philadelphia that is fun for kids ages 7-16?
The possibilities are endless!
You could swing into the historic section and see the Liberty Bell, stop in to Besty Ross's house, and visit Independence Hall.
Here's a link for the historic sites: http://historicphiladelphia.org/#void
You could stop in at any of the museums in Philly. The Franklin Institute but if you go there you should check out the Tuttleman IMAX theater! Totally an amazing experience! The screen is a huge dome that surrounds you. The entire museum is an amazing experience that the whole family can enjoy!

Another fantastic place to stop while in the Philly area is the Philadelphia Zoo, which is America's first zoo! There's something for everyone, just be sure to wear very comfortable shoes and sunscreen, this zoo is a full day event but you won't regret stopping in! Be sure to see the Big Cat exhibit as well as the Primate House!

I hope you guys do stop in Philly, especially if you've never been there before! It's a very worthwhile stop with lots and lots of things to do and see!
I would definitely put Hershey on the list! I went there a couple summers ago at the end of a road trip and LOVED it. It is like Six Flags and Disney combined. It has the characters and the high cleanliness/friendliness of Disney with the many rides and rollercoasters of SIx Flags. It is definitely a place that a wide age range will enjoy. I also liked that they had rules regarding what attire could be worn throughout the park - when you left the water park there were signs reminding you that clothing (as opposed to bathing suits) was now required. Just a little thing, but I felt that it made for a more classy and enjoyable environment.
OMG you have got to read Cardelean's hub about Hershey. If that doesn't convince you what to see and do, nothing will. Have fun.
