Langhorne, Pennsylvania: Kid-Friendly Attractions and Outdoor Recreation near Philadelphia
Langhorne is a quiet, family-friendly town that's in stark contrast to the big cities nearby: Philadelphia (about a half hour away) and New York City (1.5 hours). Langhorne's biggest draw is Sesame Place, a theme park filled with water slides, rides, and play areas inspired by the classic children's show Sesame Street. For a special treat, kids and parents can even dine with some of the show's best-loved characters. Featured in Parents magazine, The Little Old House of Make Believe—another local attraction—lets kids tap into their creative sides by dressing up in astronaut gear, building their own forts, and playing with handmade toys.
Langhorne isn't all child's play. The surrounding landscape is dotted with green hills, century-old covered bridges, and state parks. At Benjamin Rush State Park, groups gather to plant flowers and vegetables in a massive community garden. Fishermen can head just east of Langhorne to cast out for walleye and largemouth bass on Van Sciver Lake, while whitewater rafters can ride the rapids of the nearby Delaware River. It's also worth visiting Styer Orchard to pick fresh peaches, apples, and pumpkins when they're in season.
