This seems a bit off the beaten path, and under-rated with all the other amazing arboretums in the Philadelphia area - but don't miss it if you can help it! Gorgeous, unique and totally family friendly (family visit with kids ranging from age 8 -13)!

So, Chanticleer is one of those gardens where every turn brings new wonder. It isn't a huge garden like Longwood, but the gardeners do a masterful job of maximizing the use of the space without overwhelming the scenery. In fact, it all seems quite natural,...More

Everyone is different with their feet. Wear what you are comfortable wearing. There are hills; there are some rocks. I would say wearing sneakers is your best bet. Save your sandals for the beach.

When is the best time to visit? Time of year? Time of day to avoid bus crowds?
