Here are just a few cities in the USA you can visit while traveling with your kids.
While in Philly make sure you visit a bunch of historic attractions, which will suit all ages. If your kids are younger than 7 years old, then you can go to the Please Touch Museum. The museum has been recently restored and it showcases the railway exhibit. If you have kids of 7+, then check out The Franklin Institute, which includes a lot of walking, sports challenges, and a brain exhibit.
