Indoor Rock Climbing for Philly Area Families

Indoor Rock Climbing for Philly Area Families

Looking for a family activity that can be both challenging and fun for the entire family? There are tons of indoor activities to do with kids, but rock gyms offer a way for the grown-ups to get moving alongside their children. Sure, everyone enjoys a trip to the museum or bounce gym, but it's also good to change it up from time to time.

Check out our list of rock-climbing facilities—a few of them are road trip material, but who doesn't like exploring a new town once in a while?
