I have to go to Philadelphia at the end of October for a lawsuit and will be there 2-4 weeks. My two sons ages 3 & 5 will be with me. Anyone have any suggestions for fun things to do with them during our down time?

The please touch museum is awesome for little kids. 

Lots of history museums and places to see (Betsy Ross, liberty bell, independence hall, Franklin Institute), art museum, but not sure how much your little ones would like those. 

I'm from the area originally, feel free to message me.

Thank you, I just might! Those things sound fun! We will definitely have to check those out. Hopefully we will be able to have time to! What about Halloween there? My boys love trick or treating but im honestly kind of scared to in a strange place! We will be staying in a hotel in what I'm assuming is downtown. The something at the Bellevue I think.

Trick or treating can be great in the right neighborhood. I would talk to the concierge to get directions to a good area. There are some parts of Philly you do not want to go near.

Yeah that's what I'm afraid of! I will ask our attorney bc he has to travel there a lot. My dh and I traveled there last summer to give our depositions and I saw things there in 3 days that I've never saw before! The Hyatt at the Bellevue, do you know where that is? If so is that area considered the "good" or "bad" part? Sorry for so many questions!!

We were just. There last week. It's really nice.  I think I remember seeing something on the website about a fall weekend.
