In the Women’s Web ‘Travel The World With Kids’ series, we talk to mums from all over the globe who are interested in exploring their backyard attractions with their tiny tots! We hope you find them useful, if someday you choose to visit their part of the world. Presented in Q&A format, this one is with Jo-Lynne Shane from Philadelphia, the blogger behind the award-winning lifestyle blog Musings of a Housewife.
Philadelphia has earned the epithet “Birthplace of America”. Jo-Lynne takes us through the kid-friendly places in Philly!
Hello Jo-Lynne! Tell us something about yourself.
I am a brand ambassador, freelance writer, and connector of people. I am also a founder of the Philly Social Media Moms, a vibrant networking group.
What are some of your suggestions for parents visiting Philadelphia with young kids?
The Please Touch Museum is great for young kids, and the Constitution Center should not be missed. Also, the Betsy Ross House is fun, and the Liberty Bell is a must-see although younger children won’t see the charm. Franklin Court is really neat too. For older kids, Independence Hall is a wonderful experience, and Congress Hall is a great place to stop too.
What have been some of your favourite outings in Philadelphia with your kids?
We took a day last summer and toured the Liberty Bell and the Constitution Center, and we took a carriage ride around historic Old City Philadelphia.
For tourists visiting Philadelphia for the first time, do you have any particular tips?
You can’t do it all in a day. Plan at least two days to see the historic sites. Also, if you want to visit Independence Hall, you will need to get tickets in advance. They sell out fast.
Are there any particular restaurants in Philadelphia that you think kids will enjoy?
We always enjoy going to Jones.
Any kid-friendly day trips out from your Philadelphia?
Yes, definitely. Lancaster is a great day trip. Also the New Jersey Aquarium in Camden is a wonderful experience for children, and it’s just across the river. Sports fans can tour the stadiums too.
Thank you Jo-Lynne!

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
