Philadelphia, PA, Local Attractions
Deerfield, IL, Local Attractions
Philadelphia Museum of Art
The Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country, and an absolute must-see on the city's cultural circuit.
Among its impressive holdings in Renaissance, American, Impressionist and Modern art, some standouts include a great Rogier van der Weyden altarpiece, a large Bathers by Cezanne, a room devoted to Philadelphia's own Thomas Eakins, and Marcel Duchamp's notorious mixed-media Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors (The Large Glass), exactly as the dada master installed it.
Valley Forge National Historical Park
With more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and well-worn trails, Valley Forge is now a magnet for runners, bicyclists and picnickers as well as history buffs.
The vast expanse of open space links the Schuylkill River Trail to the Horse Shoe Trail, turning the park into a major hub in a 75-mile system linking Philadelphia to the Appalachian Trail.
The Liberty Bell Center
The Liberty Bell has a new home, and it is as powerful and dramatic as the Bell itself. Throughout the expansive, light-filled Center, larger-than-life historic documents and graphic images explore the facts and the myths surrounding the Bell.
National Constitution Center
The 160,000-square-foot National Constitution Center explores and explains this amazing document through high-tech exhibits, artifacts, and interactive displays. The Kimmel Theater, a 350-seat star-shaped theater, features “Freedom Rising,” a multimedia production combining film, a live actor and video projection on a 360° screen to tell the stirring story of “We the people.”
The Franklin Institute
An innovator in designing hands-on exhibits before “interactive” became a buzzword, The Franklin Institute is as clever as its namesake. Its eminently touchable attractions explore science in disciplines ranging from sports to space.
Highlights include The Sports Challenge, which uses virtual-reality technology to illustrate the physics of sports; The Train Factory's climb-aboard steam engine; Space Command's simulated earth-orbit research station; a fully equipped weather station; and exhibits on electricity.
The Barnes Foundation
The Barnes Foundation was created in 1922, a school originating with Barnes’ educational experimentation in his Argyrol (pharmaceutical) factory. Barnes and The Foundation’s first director of education, John Dewey, were interested in fostering cognitive development through new approaches to education, and in heightening critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through the study of art. Barnes, like Dewey, was actively engaged in development of an intellectual framework and educational philosophies and practices with many of the best artists and thinkers of his day.
The Rocky Statue
One of Philadelphia’s most famous pieces of public art is a bigger-than-life boxer… literally. Originally created for Rocky III, the sculpture is now a real-life monument to a celluloid hero. The fictional Rocky Balboa of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky movies was immortalized in bronze in 1980. After filming for the movie completed, Stallone donated the statue to the City of Philadelphia.
Franklin Square, one of Philadelphia’s five original public squares laid out by William Penn in his original plan for the city, has undergone a dramatic renovation. The park now boasts several family-friendly attractions, including a miniature golf course, classic carousel, burger joint, storytelling bench, picnic area and more.
Deerfield Golf and Learning Center
Open to the public, Deerfield Golf Club is a beautiful 18-hole championship golf course, with a learning center, practice ranges, clubhouse and more. If you would like to tune up your game, lessons are available with PGA and golf professionals. Deerfield Golf Club and Learning Center boasts one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in the entire Chicago area. Designed by famed golf course designer Edward Lawrence Packard, the course measures nearly 7,000 yards from the championship tees; however, the course offers five sets of tees that will challenge the expert yet afford the beginning golfer a very playable and pleasurable experience.
Chicago Botanic Garden
A mere 15 minute drive from Deerfield, the Chicago Botanic Garden is situated in Glencoe, Illinois. It is a 385-acre living plant museum that features 26 display gardens and is surrounded by four natural habitats: McDonald Woods, Dixon Prairie, Skokie River Corridor, and Lakes and Shores. The garden is open every day of the year.
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
The Brushwood Center holds that environmental education extends beyond childhood and science to embrace human interaction with nature and its expression, including literature, music, photography, film and other fine and performing arts. Using the natural sanctuary of Ryerson Woods as a springboard for education, the Brushwood Center explores the interplay of art and nature with various activities year round.
Kohl Children’s Museum
Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago is located on an 8.8-acre parcel of land in the center of The Glen in Glenview, at 2100 Patriot Boulevard, Glenview, Illinois. The museum boasts of 23,000 square feet of public space. An additional 2-acre outdoor exhibit space, Habitat Park, allows for museum attendance to be less weather-dependent. Kohl Children’s Museum houses 17 hands-on, interactive exhibits. The museum has developed a Parents’ Guide to Kohl Children's Museum of Greater Chicago to help parents and children choose the exhibits they want to visit.
The Cuneo Mansion and Gardens is a historic home, art collection and gardens in Vernon Hills, Illinois, near Deerfield. Built in 1914, the mansion now hosts an art gallery as well. It opened its doors to the public for the first time in 1991. The mansion's paintings, tapestries, and other furnishings are the lifelong collections of the Cuneo family, the mansion’s last owners. In addition to architecture and art, Cuneo is also known for its grounds. During the holiday season, the museum and its grounds are decorated with holiday lights and people are invited to drive through a "Winter Wonderland Light Show". Interpretive tours of the mansion and its collections are conducted by museum guides and staff. The Mediterranean style mansion features an arcaded central hall, a lavish formal dining room and a private chapel. The collections include antique furnishings, Renaissance paintings, tapestries, silver and porcelain.
Lambs Farm is a non-profit organization in Libertyville, Illinois, about 20 minutes from Deerfield. It provides vocational and residential services for over 250 adults with developmental disabilities. Located on a 72-acre campus, Lambs Farm includes several family attractions, including a petting zoo, a pet shop, a miniature golf course, several small amusement rides, a restaurant, a thrift shop, a country store and a bakery. Since its inception in the 1960s, Lambs Farm has come a long way and now hosts thousands of visitors each year, making it the third most popular attraction in Lake County, Illinois.
Less than 30 minutes away Deerfield, in Tempel Farms Wadsworth, you can visit the rare and graceful white Lipizzan stallion. During the summer months, this world renowned breed of horse performs in the traditional style upheld by Vienna’s prominent Spanish Riding School.
