|Looking for off the beaten tracks ideas for your week-ends?
Follow my path, I love to discover and experience new destinations, break the routine, have fun!
I have tested all the propositions of activities that you will see in the list. Share with friends and families. There are so many things to discover here and there and everywhere.
You may already have been to some of the places. Believe me, there is always more to discover than the well known landmarks. Consider this list as a menu, pick and choose one or more activity, and enjoy!
Today I will give you tips about: Philadelphia
There is so much to do there. On a cold windy winter day, I suggest you stay indoors to explore treasures. Take a close look at medical oddities and A.Einstein’s brain- and learn about the bizarre and true story- at the Mutter Museum muttermuseum.org.
Book a table at Vedge (Vegan) Restaurant: innovative, tasty, upscale- Absolutely delicious!
Take a class at the Wine School of Phillie and/or one at the Restaurant School while your kids are busy roaming the Children Museum- aka Please Touch Museum- and its hands on activities.
An unusual landmark is the Eastern Penitentiary, meant to be humane, that drove men insane.
Enjoy the warm winter sun, hidden away from the wind, in the Magic gardens: a very original and colorful art work.
In Philly, take the time to visit the collections of the Victorian Science Museum Wagner Free Institute.
From Boston to Baltimore, here too, Edgar Allan Poe, of course, left strong vivid memories.
Will you dare entering the well known Harry’s Occult Products shop? Harry Potter and Hermione shadow you.
You might be tempted by a tea ceremony in the tea house. Register ahead to one of the typical Japanese Sunday workshop.
Your kids will love facts hunting at the Mummers museum.
The Barnes Foundation (www.barnesfoundation.org) has a tremendous collection, both art and horticulture. Book in advance your family-oriented guided tour, family workshop and buy you tickets online.
