4. Turtleback Zoo

There's a couple of fun things going on at the zoo this weekend.

First, there is a pancake breakfast at the zoo at 8:30 am both Saturday & Sunday.

On Saturday from 9:30 - 11:30 am is a giraffe painting class for kids! How fun?!?! For more info on this go to: www.asipofart.com


5. THE BEST ONE... It is apple picking season!!

We like Riamede Farm in Chester. Their apple cider and cider donuts are amazing! Plus, they have a great variety of apples to pick and not a lot of fussy stuff that the kids love, but costs you a fortune and all of your patience.

9 am - 4:30 pm Daily

122 Oakdale Road, Chester
