As we reach the beginning of November, we grow closer to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all of the holiday festivities. Thanksgiving is known as being the time for family to get together and enjoy a holiday meal, and prepare to share gifts at Christmas and Hanukkah. The entire month of November is loaded with activities for every person; including families, the artistic, the sports-driven, and the history buffs. You don’t even have to worry about making a turkey; just bring yourself, your family, or your friends!
All Around Pennsylvania
If you’re looking to travel to Philadelphia for family and friends, or just trying to stay local, finding a nice daily activity is no problem. The only aspect you need to consider is how far you’re willing to go. The area ranging from Center City Philadelphia, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, and Peddler’s village in Bucks County, has plenty for both families and friends to do. These holiday festivities could include parades, art showings, historical sessions, beautiful season’s greetings, or even just watching the NFL games on Thanksgiving Day. No matter how you plan on celebrating this time of the year, you have plenty of options to choose from:
- Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show (November 10-13)
- First Person Festival (November 10-20)
- The Lighting of Peddler’s Village (November 16-18)
- Philadelphia Marathon (November 18)
- Thanksgiving Day Parade (November 22)
- A Longwood Gardens Christmas (November 22-January 6)
- Thanksgiving at the Constitution Center (November 25-27)
- Then December 1st will be Morris House Hotels very own first annual Tree Lighting
No matter if you’re looking to do a lot or a little, the Philadelphia area provides many options for everyone to enjoy.
Philadelphia also offers the richest history in the United States. If none of the holiday festivities interest you, Old City in Philadelphia has many more reasons for you to visit. The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Constitution Center (to name the very least) give us graphic proof about our past, and give us one more huge reason to be so thankful for the holiday season!
