Arden Theater As I mentioned in a previous post, The Art Reach Philadelphia Access program has added theaters and we are excited! You will find the Arden Theater in historic Old City Philadelphia. The Arden Theater is located at 40 N. 2nd Street, between Market and Arch Streets in Old City Philadelphia. They are immediately next to historic Christ Church and half a block north of the Market-Frankford Line’s 2nd Street stop, if public transportation is more convenient for you. Unfortunately, we struggled with parking the day we visited. There was a play in the early afternoon, ours was late afternoon. Because of this, the parking was beyond filled and somewhat chaotic. Staff inside suggested we hang out until the first show ended and the lots emptied a bit. We chose to unload at the corner and my husband drove around until he convinced the lot attendant that he was supposed to fit in their lot, as advised by staff inside the theater. It was frustrating for him. Next time we attend, we will use a parking app to find a local lot. Arden Theater Neighborhood View Continue Reading

Some of our favorites have been the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Franklin Institute, the National Constitution Center, multiple walks through the Morris Arboretum and Longwood Gardens. We even stayed somewhat local and visited the Michener Art Museum. Many of these outings were made during the dreary and cold winter months. Just as many were made as a complete family. (Which explains our trip to the Mutter museum. Definitely not my go-to form of entertainment! But it is interesting...and creepy!) The Art Reach Continue Reading
