What better way to escape the end of winter than to surround yourself with flowers? Next weekend, The Pennsylvania Convention Center hosts the Philadelphia International Flower Show and transforms the convention center into Springtime in Paris.
I really want to convince my husband that we should go. A couple of years ago we took a weekend trip to Philly with the girls and had a great time. I think we’re due for another. The flower show offers something for the entire family. Fisher Price will set up a family lounge full of toys, puppet shows, activities and more. Older kids can have fun getting their “Kid’s Passport” stamped throughout the day and for adults, there will be food tastings, vendors and of course–flowers.
Here is a list of suggested accomodations. We stayed at The Embassy Suites, which was very family-friendly and nice.
