It's never easy finding the right place to take the kids on vacation, and though Philadelphia doesn't immediately spring to mind, Parents magazine has named it on its list of Top Ten cities for families with kids to visit, and that's saying something. Ranking in at number 10, Philadelphia made the cut because of its variety of attractions and reasonable costs, two major factors for families to consider.
Parents magazine has put Philadelphia on its Top Ten list of best cities for families with kids to visit.
Karen Cicero, contributing editor of Parents, says the list was based on a variety of factors.
“We looked at the number of attractions that were family friendly, and the quality of those attractions, and the cost of them,” she explained, along with the range of hotel and lodging options and how much they cost, how walkable the city is, whether the airport had play areas or other family friendly features, the public transportation options, the crime rate, and the weather.
