Sometimes, we get a beautiful day in the winter that feels a bit like spring. With a toddler who’d been stuck inside for a couple of days and a nice break in the weather, it was time to get out a bit. If you’re looking for something to do with kids on these winter days, the Zoo is definitely worth checking out.
The Philadelphia Zoo is the oldest zoo in the US, established in 1874. It’s located only a short trip from Center City and it’s easy to get to along the Schuylkill River. We’ve bought the annual pass for a couple of years now which includes unlimited access and free parking in the Zoo’s garage.
Even though the zoo is open all year, most of the animals spend colder days inside. When the weather is over 50 degrees, most of the animals are outside. Since the zoo has indoor and outdoor spaces it’s perfect for these somewhat warmer days when getting inside for a bit can be nice.
The Philadelphia Zoo is one of the great attractions of the area and certainly worth a visit at any time of year, but when the weather breaks in winter (and you have a toddler who really needs to get out of the house) the zoo is a great place to check out.
The Philadelphia area is a great place to live and work and I love sharing all that Philadelphia has to offer. From our unique neighborhoods and towns, great parks, amazing restaurants and nightlife, museums, and events there’s no shortage of things to do and see in, and near, Philadelphia. Since 2010, I’ve been helping people buy and sell their homes in the Philadelphia area specializing in Center City, Northwest Philadelphia, and the Montgomery County suburbs bordering the city. Outside of being a Realtor®, I’m a dad to an amazing little girl, husband to an amazing wife, and dog-dad to Frida. Together, we enjoy taking advantage of everything that Philadelphia has to offer and exploring the many parks, festivals, and events in the city. Since 2017, I’ve been supporting KenCrest through volunteer efforts including organizing cleaning and painting days at their community homes, decorating for the holidays at children’s transitional homes, and coordinating fundraising and toy drives to support their efforts.
