Suburban Station

Friday, February 10th, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — Suburban Station is an underground train station at 16th Street and JFK Boulevard in Penn Center, Philadelphia, PA. There are several entrances located across and underneath Love Park. The station was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad and opened on September 28, 1930.

The underground concourse has SEPTA ticket offices, retail shops, restaurants and some of Philly’s best musicians playing for the commuters. It is an ideal hide-away in the winter months. The street musicians play holiday music and the mall makes for comfortable shopping on cold days.

Both young and old enjoy watching the trains arrive and depart. You can also take a train ride to watch planes land and take-off at the Philadelphia International Airport on the SEPTA | Airport Line Regional Rail.

Fort Washington State Park, Montgomery County, PA

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Fort Washington State Park is located in Montgomery County, PA. It was camp for George Washington and the Continental Army before marching to Valley Forge.

The park is free to the public and is open daily from sunrise to sunset. The exact spot where Washington’s cannons stood has been turned into a State Park. A deck has been erected that overlooks the Wissahickon Valley. From here, you can walk in Washington’s footsteps as you look out toward Germantown. At the end of the deck, a special “wildlife area” is being nurtured. A public log shows sightings of nearly 60 different species of butterflies. The same holds true with birds. The end of the deck reveals a spectrum of song and humming birds numbering near 200. Every year volunteers conduct a raptor census while the hawks are migrating.
