With its ninety-two acres of English gardens, this Victorian arboretum is a hit with kids and adults. As part of the University of Pennsylvania (about a 30-minute drive outside of the city), it offers educational classes on horticulture throughout the year–but the biggest draw, at least for littles, is the network of bridges, catwalks, and observation bridges suspended from the trees, fifty feet above ground. You can amble along the canopy walk, lie on the giant hammocks, or see the trees and gardens from a different perspective via the telescopes.
