Visiting Sesame Place this weekend--other kid-friendly things to do?
September 11, 2018 9:08 AM   Subscribe

We're driving from Boston to Langhorne, PA this Friday morning to bring our twin 2-year old boys to Sesame Place. The park isn't open on Friday, so we'll have some time to kill in the afternoon. Suggestions?

Ideally something active as our bambinos will have been cooped up in the car for 5+ hours. I don't know the area at all. Any cool children's museums, playgrounds, or other can't miss spots for kids (or Mom & Dad) near Langhorne or the stretch from NYC to Sesame Place?

Coming from NYC, you'll pass Woodbridge, NJ, where there's an indoor play space called Kidz Village. Or in Jersey City there's the fantastic Liberty Science Center, some of which will be beyond 2 year olds, but they have a kids playroom with sensory table and vacuum ball tubes, a small aquarium, those blue Imagination building blocks, an indoor climbing structure, and outdoor sand/dino dig.

We did exactly this, one weekend earlier last year with our three-year-old, and honestly after being cooped up all morning I think the last thing she wanted was anything structured. We stopped and got cheesesteaks and took them to a nearby park (Core Creek County Park according to the geotagged photos) to eat and burn off some energy. There's a (very) small playground, but for very little ones it might be enough.

I don't know if you're staying at the hotel across from Sesame Place, but there's a pool; I think we jumped in there just about as soon as we checked in.

Land of Make Believe in New Hope, PA could be on the way

If you're up for going into Philadelphia, there's the lovely Please Touch Museum.

You won't be too far from the Bucks County Children's Museum.

When we went to Sesame Place with our twins we spent a day at the Crayola Factory. It's a bit out of the way coming from Boston though.

Strasburg Railroad! It looks to be about an hour and a half from Langhorne. My son loved it when he was a wee lad.

I don't know your proposed route but I-78 from NJ will take you to Easton, Pa. for the Crayola Factory; you can then continue on 78 to Route 309, which will take you into Bucks County, or backtrack a bit to 611, which will take you through Bucks to Doylestown and past Kids' Castle. From there, it's not far to Sesame Place.
