Summer in the city - little boy playing with fountain

With summer in full swing, here are some of the best activities in the area to keep you busy while keeping you cool.

Philadelphia

If you live in our beautiful Siena Place, you’re close by many of Philadelphia’s summer attractions. Between now and October 1, be sure to visit Spruce Street Harbor Park, returning for its fourth season. This temporary park has colorful hammocks you can relax on in the warm weather, sample delicious local fare in its floating restaurant, drink cold drafts from the beer garden, and participate in plenty of team games such as ping pong and shuffleboard. It’s located at Spruce Street and S. Columbus Blvd in Philly.

Want to catch a movie under the stars? Head to Penn’s Landing every Thursday night in July and August for a public outdoor showing of a different movie on the big screen. Just bring your own blanket or a lawn chair to enjoy the latest movie while perched on the scenic banks of the Delaware River.

Lehigh Valley

If you call Whispering Pines in Coopersburg, Lehigh County home, take in a ball game in nearby Allentown at Coco-Cola Park. This 8,000-seat stadium is a cheap night out as you cheer for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Also in Allentown is Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, where you pay one low price and get to enjoy both parks. With more than 100 rides, shows and attractions, you can spend a whole day and night here with the family or grandkids. Ranked one of the country’s best water parks, and home to the largest collection of kids’ rides in Planet Snoopy, Dorney Park happens to be one of the most visited amusement parks in the country. Which one of the eight roller coasters will be your favorite?

Bucks County

Do you live in Renaissance at Morgan Creek? If so, and you have grandkids who like to come visit on the weekend, a visit to Kids Castle in Central Park in Doylestown is a must. This impressive play area includes an eight-story wooden playground structure created in 1997. There are designated areas for kids ages two to five, and other areas for kids five to 12 years old. You’ll find this iconic park at 425 Wells Road. On a rainy day, head to the Bucks County Children’s Museum at 500 Union Square in New Hope. Enjoy a fun, educational, and hands-on environment for children and parents that celebrates Bucks County’s charm, history and character.
