Get back to you roots – Valley Forge National Historical Park
There is no better way to honor the lives of our American soldiers than to learn about the history of our country at one of the most iconic landmarks in the nation. Whether you take a trolley tour, a bike tour, or a ranger-led walking tour, you are sure to discover something new about the historic monuments and cabins in our park. Step into the lives of former U.S. soldiers by standing on the grounds they once marched on and experiencing the homes they lived in, including President Washington’s quarters. A trip to the park will allow you to step back and remember why we honor those who have fought for our freedom!
Enjoy a delicious brunch – Founding Farmers King of Prussia
After trekking through the rolling hills and staring up at the giant monuments, you are sure to feel a grumbling in your stomach. Next stop on the Memorial Day weekend getaway is Founding Farmers, just across town in King of Prussia. With a brunch buffet that seems like a mile long, full of locally sourced farm-to-table food, everyone will find something they love. Treat yourself to some comfort food like southern fried chicken or opt for the sweeter side of the buffet and make your own ice cream Sundae.
Stroll down the river – Schuylkill River Trail
You might need to walk off that big brunch, good thing Montco has over 90 miles of connected Circuit trails to keep you moving all day. Head down the Schuylkill River trail to connect to Philadelphia, or just bike your way through the county! Whatever trail you take, you will likely stumble upon some hidden gems and picturesque views.
Feed the Giraffes – Elmwood Park Zoo
For more family fun, head to the Elmwood Park Zoo and see anything from zebras to jaguars to giraffes, oh my! Kids will love the interactive experience with the animals and can even learn about the conservation efforts the zoo has been a part of. And to honor our military this Memorial Day, the zoo offers discounted ticket rates to all military members and their families!
