Whenever a carefree August day presents itself, a family 'go-to' activity is to read a book. Luckily for Philly families, this week offers a variety of opportunities to do just that. From listening to stories under the trees at an arboretum, among the animals at the zoo, at a neighborhood bookstore, or even at a grist mill, children can dive into the world of imagination through interesting characters.
If your crew prefers to watch a movie, there are plenty of spots throughout the Delaware Valley to indulge in film. Penn's Landing and Water Tower Recreation Center feature Beauty and the Beast, Aston Community Center presents The Good Dinosaur, Miles Park showcases Finding Dory, and Oxford Memorial Park welcomes folks to watch Sing. Those looking to escape screens for a bit can turn to nature and our latest round up of parks, gardens, and other open spaces. Be sure to plan a visit to one or two of them before the summer ends.
