You probably saw my Sesame Place blog post where I shared pictures of our visit to Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA. While we were in Philadelphia we also visited some other places (although Sesame Place was still the highlight of the trip for my daughter).
We visited the Philadelphia Zoo where we noticed you could ride a camel. No. We did not ride the camel.
In KidZooU (the new children’s area) there is a petting zoo where you can walk around and pet the animals.
Inside the Reptile and Amphibian House we saw

My daughter is a huge Sesame Street Fan! Last year we visited Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL for their Sesame Street Safari of Fun (you can read more about that trip here). In 2011, we visited San Antonio, TX for the SeaWorld Sesame Street Bay of Play (see some pictures here). This year we topped all those trips by visiting Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA. An entire park full of Sesame Street characters, kids rides and water play areas!
If we lived near the Langhorne area we would definitely have season passes to

A couple of weeks ago we took a family trip to Langhorne, PA. This trip was in the making for a while because Sesame Place is in Langhorne and you all know how much my daughter loves Sesame Street! This trip was extra special too because my husband’s parents and sister (including her family) joined us as well. We don’t see them very often since we live in different states so it was almost a mini family reunion.
We all stayed at the Residence Inn Philadelphia Langhorne. This hotel is right off the freeway and within 5

Okay so I just realized that when we visited Louisiana for Spring Break in March we were staying in Bossier City not Shreveport. There is a small river right next to the Boardwalk and on one side is Bossier City, the other side is Shreveport. Sorry for the confusion! Either way all the places I blogged about had the correct location. So we stayed at the Courtyard Marriot right next to the Louisiana Boardwalk which is located in Bossier City, LA.
The Louisiana Boardwalk is a huge outdoor mall with shops, restaurants, a theater, spa, merry-go-round, small

We visited Shreveport, LA for Spring Break earlier this month. It is a 3-4 hour drive from Fort Worth, TX. While we visited the area we stayed at the Courtyard Hotel right on the Louisiana Boardwalk. Sorry but I don’t have any pictures of the hotel or of our room. You can view pictures on the Courtyard Shreveport website.
This hotel is 3-stories. It is located right next to the Louisiana Boardwalk so you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. On the 1st floor is a small coffee shop that serves Starbucks Coffee (huge plus

Another place we visited on our Spring Break vacation in Shreveport, LA is Jumpin Jupiter. Jumpin Jupiter is in Bossier City, LA. From the Louisiana Boardwalk where we were staying it was a 5-10 minute drive. It is an indoor jump place with those huge inflatable bouncers. When we visited it was not busy at all probably because all the kids were in school. The place is very clean and has (if I remember correctly) 5 different inflatables to play on. There is also a small area with a playhouse for smaller children.

For my daughter’s Spring Break this year we took a short road trip to Shreveport, LA. From Fort Worth, TX it is a 3 -4 hour drive. While we stayed in Shreveport we visited the surrounding areas to find places to keep busy. One place we found that we had a lot of fun at was Party Central.
Party Central is located in Bossier City, LA. It is a 15 minute drive from the Louisiana Boardwalk where we were staying. Based on the name it is a great place to have any kind of party. They have
