Last Minute Summer Travel Ideas

Looking for a quick getaway before the kids head back to school? We have picked out some of our favorite places to visit.  All of our picks are driveable and no more than a few hours from the Philadelphia suburbs.



1. Double Tree Resort in Lancaster PA.  There is so much to do at this family-friendly resort.  This 185-room resort is very family friendly, but it's also perfect for a weekend getaway without the kids.  The hotel is about a 10-15 minute drive to the Strasburg Rail Road, Choo Choo Barn, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm and other Lancaster attractions.



2. Kalahari Resort in the Pocono Mountains. If you are looking for a water park adventure then Kalahari will keep everyone happy and entertained.  Kalahari is just under two hours away from the Philadelphia area. Kalahari is truly a family oriented place and they have thought of everything to keep all members of the family happy and occupied while on vacation. 



The National Harbor area is located on the banks of the Potomac River and it has plenty of activities to keep the family busy, take a breathtaking ride on the Capital Wheel or a spin on the Carousel. Explore the area with Water Taxis or a Sight Seeing Cruises
There are two great resorts to stay in while visiting the area Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center and The Residence Inn


Baltimore has something for everyone. Younger kids will enjoy Port Discovery Museum, which offers 3 floors of hands-on activities for the kids. National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Museum are also must see places when visiting the Harbor
If you want to stay check out the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Maryland that is in walking distance to all the attractions.



5. Williamsburg Virgina
The Williamsburg area has plenty of activities to keep your family busy.  Head to Busch Gardens for some family thrills.  Take a step back in time at Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Jamestown or Jamestown Settlement.



Grand Cascades Lodge is a beautiful and well-appointed AAA 4-Diamond hotel located in Hamburg, New Jersey.  The main attraction for families at the hotel is the Biosphere, which is an indoor pool complex with an aquarium, vortex pools, and caves, and lush tropical foliage; year-round outdoor heated pool; 140-foot waterslide.  There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep the family busy.  

New Soccer Training Programs

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Future Captain Sports.  We appreciate their support of Fun Things.


Future Captain (FC) Sports will be expanding their great child development and soccer training programs this year. They have recently partnered with Maple Zone Sports Institute in Garnet Valley, PA in Delaware County to offer a full range of services from child development classes to individual training for soccer players and teams of every level.  FC Sports will now be running all leagues and soccer training programs for Maple Zone.  

Maple Zone Sports Institutes's soccer facilities are easy to get to from I 95 and Rt 1. With three full-sized outdoor soccer fields in addition to their two indoor fields, FC sports has all the room they need to expand their programs and provide year-round soccer fun. 


Upcoming Child Development Classes

Child Development Program at Maple Zone
Location: Maple Zone: 1451 Conchester Highway, Garnet Valley, PA 19061
Cost: 80.00
Dates: From September 10th - October 29th
Time: 10:00am to 11:00am

Classes also offered at the HEALTHPLEX


More About FC Sports
FC Sports has been providing local soccer players and clubs with both team and individual soccer training for several years. This has allowed FC Sports to build a team of qualified and knowledgeable soccer training staff and to create a comprehensive soccer curriculum for players of all levels from intramural to travel and elite travel to college.


What Makes FC Sports Different?

FC Sports’ philosophy of passing on the sense that I am special. 

Our philosophy will continue to grow with our Maple Zone partnership by cultivating relationships with two important groups of people - a network of soccer coaches who believe in passing along the sense that I am special and organizations , small groups, and individuals who believe their children benefit from aligning with this philosophy. 

We are important to the area because our philosophy passing along the sense that I am special is missing.  It is the healthy emergence of the child through to the next stage of his/her development which is the main goal of FC Sports.
