Langhorne, Pennsylvania: Kid-Friendly and Historic Attractions near Philadelphia
Langhorne has a quiet, neighborly feel, but it's not too far removed from the city—downtown Philadelphia is only about a half hour away. The town is home to a handful of kid-centric attractions, including Sesame Place (Sesame Place will be open daily from December 26–31, and closed for the season beginning January 1, 2014) and The Little Old House of Make Believe. Featured in Parents magazine, this local attraction lets kids tap into their creative sides by dressing up in astronaut gear, building their own forts, and playing with handmade toys.
Just steps away is the Langhorne Historic District, which is lined with historic homes and the town's original library, built in 1888. The library currently houses a museum with artifacts and photographs from the town's early days.
