Brew Ha-Ha!

Coffee Shops, Cafés

Have breakfast in a pleasant coffee shop near the Brandywine Park. The cafe's owners describe its philosophy as a mixture of Italian quality and Delaware friendliness and hospitality. A special comfort is given to this place by an interior in which elegancy is combined with the brutality inherent in usually hunting lodges. The menu has a good selection of dishes especially for breakfast: scrambled eggs, toast and bagels with different fillings, cupcakes and other pastries.

Delaware Children's Museum


Travelers under seven will be interested to visit the children's museum. Here you can both get new knowledge and have a great fun. The museum has an art studio for kids, several playgrounds, educational areas where children can look at simple experiments or learn about professions. If your child is over seven, or too serious for such entertainment, make a choice in favor of the art museum or the zoo, they are both located in the territory of Brendwine Park.

Delaware Art Museum

Very beautiful museum, which will appeal even to those who are far from art. The park around the building is decorated with original sculptures, the works by our contemporaries. The collections of the museum contain thematic collections of art works from pre-Raphaelite paintings to bold installations of the creators of the twenty-first century. There is also a children's art studio and a pottery workshop at the museum. Сheck the schedule on the official website. The museum is open to visitors from Wednesday to Sunday.

El Diablo Burritos

Burrito Places

In el Diablo, you can choose absolutely every ingredient for your tacos and burritos, from the base of meat or vegetables, to sauces and spices. In addition to traditional Mexican snacks, the menu has a good selection of meat and fish dishes, salads and side dishes, so you can come here not only for a snack, but also for a full meal.

Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown

John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge

Trails, Other Great Outdoors, Parks

John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge is a beautiful green park in the southwest of Philadelphia. Here you can see amazing contrasts of untouched nature and the metropolis: some viewpoints offers a view of the city skyscrapers. The park is perfect for watching animals and birds, ducks, herons, gulls and turtles can be found on numerous lakes, fearful hares are hiding in the grass, and if you're lucky you can take a picture of a family of spotted deer.

Talula's Garden

New American Restaurants

Let's have dinner in Philadelphia. A visit to Talula's Garden is a real gourmet feast. If the weather is good, you can enjoy a delicious meal on the open veranda, richly decorated with flowers. And the interior looks particularly warm and cozy, thanks to the original eclectic decor. You will definitely find a dish to taste in the menu, and it is definitely worth taking a tasting cheese set.
