Coronavirus lockdown has touched every aspect of our lives, and after months of living with stay-at-home orders, Pennsylvanians are giddy at the prospect of getting outside again. So while we've had to get creative with homeschooling hacks, virtual birthdays, graduation celebrations, and even at-home haircuts, we can look forward to visiting our favorite parks, restaurants, shops, and museums in the (hopefully near) future as Governor Tom Wolf begins to implement the Pennsylvania reopening plan.
Wolf's plan to reopen Pennsylvania has three phases, and parts of the state, particularly in the west, are already moving into the yellow second phase. With changes regularly occurring as the recorded cases of coronavirus drop, it can be hard to figure out what's open and what's still closed. Read on to find out what Philly-area amenities and attractions are beginning to reopen, including schools and businesses, as well as trails, beaches, farms, and more. With proper adherence to social-distancing protocols, including limiting gatherings and wearing face masks, outside-the-home fun is starting to come back to Pennsylvania!
