Summer Break this year calls for a little creativity! Consider Montco the perfect place to mix some learning with your family vacation.
John James Audubon Center
The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is the perfect spot to explore nature and go bird-watching. The museum is a wonderful resource for those that are curious about birds and other animals. Throughout the year, the Audubon Center also has guided bird walks and other educational events for adults and children. The trails around the Center are perfect for exploring too.
King of Prussia
Adventurous kids can spend their Spring Break skydiving indoors at iFLY. The engineering marvel of the vertical wind tunnel is anything but ordinary, and kids will enjoy defying gravity, while also learning.
Valley Forge National Historical Park
Seeing a historical place truly makes history come alive in a way that reading a textbook never can. At Valley Forge, the site of the winter encampment of the Continental Army, take either a self-guided tour, or learn from Park Rangers about the historical figures and the significant events that happened there. There’s also plenty of space for families to have a picnic or ride bikes along the trails.
Abington Art Center
Get up close and personal to a variety of visual, performing, modern and folk arts in Montgomery County. The 27-acre sculpture garden at the Abington Art Center is an amazing combination of art and nature. Larger-than-life works of art are showcased in this unique open-air gallery.
Elmwood Park Zoo
The Elmwood Park Zoo is always a great time for kids and parents. Mix your visit with an educational experience while there. The Zoo's Education Department conducts live animal shows and on-site programs all summer long.
