It's hard to believe that January is here because Philly families can still find plenty of remaining holiday fun in our event calendar. From admiring the beauty of Yuletide at Winterthur to viewing the holiday lights at Shady Brook Farm or Colonial Lights Displays, die-hard Christmas fans can savor the last bits of the season. Plus, trains are barreling down the tracks at Brandywine River Museum, Longwood Gardens, Schuylkill Valley Model Railroad Club, and The Museum of American History to entertain train lovers.

Families can also welcome the new year with new experiences. Jam out to music with Gustafer Yellowgold at World Cafe Live, see Daniel Tiger on stage at the Merriam Theater, or take a magic carpet ride to see Aladdin at People's Light and Theatre Company. Spend some family time together by exploring Fonthill Castle or by experiencing Wonderlandscapes at Philadelphia Museum of Art.
