Philadelphia holds an important chapter in the history of our nation. It's known as the origination spot of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," but anyone who is familiar with this city knows that it offers so much more than just historical landmarks and cobblestone streets. There is an abundance of treasures offered up in the form of cultural, culinary and artistic attractions. It's a great area to explore in a motorhome, and our Limerick Cruise America RV rental center, located just outside of Philadelphia, makes touring the Keystone State easy … and comfortable.
Don't let your Philly experience pass by without visiting Franklin Square. While it has undergone some major changes since the beginning, this is one of five public squares developed by William Penn as he planned the layout of the city. Here you will find many family-friendly attractions, including picnic areas, a miniature golf course, a beautiful classic carousel, storytelling sessions for the kids, and even a "Burger Shack" where you can get hamburgers, hot dogs, shakes, fries and more. There's also the Reading Terminal Market, which is the oldest continually operating farmer's market in the nation. At the market you can find local produce, meats, a huge variety of cheeses, great baked goods and other deserts, such as Pennsylvania Dutch pies and delicious sticky buns. You will find every kind of cuisine imaginable there as well.
If you'd like to get away from the big city, here are a few ideas for you:
Just a half hour down the road is Bristol, PA, where you will find the Silver Lake Nature Center. This beautiful environment compliments the relaxation you'll discover traveling in your Cruise America rental RV. The 235 acres of beauty are perfect for kayaking, bird watching, pond exploring and festivals. Your family will enjoy the butterfly garden, along with the diverse animal and plant life along the 4.5 miles of hiking trails. To get there, just go north on I-95 and take exit 40 … simple! There are a number of great RV parks in the area where you can station your rental motorhome.
From a family trip to Hershey Park, where you'll find plenty of rides and chocolate treats galore, to a quiet day of reflection at Gettysburg National Military Park (the site of Lincoln's famous Civil War speech), an RV rental in Pennsylvania has something for everyone, young and old.
