We’ve made it out of the winter weather, the cold temps and the just downright miserable all weekend rain from 2 weeks ago. In 2 weeks, it’s one of the best weekends of the year in our area. You can feel summer rounding the bend. The New Jersey beaches open up, and you’ve probably already made your plans to get down the shore. If you don’t have any plans and you’re looking to fill out your weekend, here are 3 things to do around the Philadelphia area.
1. Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest
Each summer they turn the ice rink area into a sort of boardwalk/carnival atmosphere. The ice skating rink becomes a roller skating rink, they have a few carnival rides and games. There is a miniature golf course plus plenty of food and drinks. Bring the kids for some rides, games and funnel cake. Then get yourself a drink at The Lodge Bar. Getting in is free, then you pay separately for each thing you decide to do. Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest
2. Do Some Day Drinking Around the City
Maybe leave the kiddos with the grandparents or at home for this one. Philadelphia has a ton of great craft breweries and bars in general. Hopefully the weather for Memorial Day will allow for some outside under the sun day drinking. Visit Philly has a great guide to breweries within a 10 minute walk of the subway.
3. Find a Memorial Day Parade
There some great parades throughout the area that celebrate Memorial Day the right way. Find one near you and head over. Media, PA has one that starts Monday morning at 10a. Check out the details here.
Whatever your Memorial Day 2023 plans may be, enjoy the weekend, the weather and the time with family and friends. Summer is almost upon us!
