Maybe you’re a longtime resident looking for something novel to do. Or you are new to town and curious about available outings and activities. Perhaps you are trying to provide a special experience for someone who is visiting you here. Either way, the greater Philadelphia area offers plenty of options. Some adventures are Philadelphia-centric, like touring the Italian Market or seeing where the Declaration of Independence was signed. You can also find laser tag places and shopping malls that are less locally-oriented. If you are here for a longer period of time, you’ll probably want to find out a little more about other activities. There are plenty of restaurants, shopping options and movie theaters as well as places to golf or play laser tag.
