10 Jun The Perfect Father’s Day in West Chester, Greater Philadelphia
Fathers Day falls on Sunday, June 20th and you may be looking for ways you can show your appreciation to Dad this year. Don’t wait until the last minute! Remember to plan and book in advance. We here at our Windermere Apartments have put together a few ideas of places you can enjoy together near Philadelphia, in West Chester.
American Helicopter Museum
If the American Helicopter Museum in West Chester doesn’t scream “Dad” to you, nothing will. The expansive museum has both indoor and outdoor displays, with 35 real helicopters of all types on site. Dad can take part in a hands-on rotary flight experience to really feel like a pilot.
West Chester Railroad
West Chester Railroad is another top Father’s Day stop for dads who love mechanical things. This time you can actually take a ride on an old-school railroad. They even offer a special Father’s Day Express ride that takes you on a 90-minute ride through West Chester and Glen Mills. You can explore the train station in Glen Mills, too.
The Golf Course at Glen Mills
Opt for one of the most father-y of Father’s Day activities by taking dad for a round at The Golf Course at Glen Mills. This course is actually one of the top-rated public golf courses in the country. It’ll be a treat for any golfer to experience this beautiful course.
Stumpy’s Hatchet House
For a more intense dad day experience, head over to Stumpy’s Hatchet House where you can learn and practice the art of ax throwing (safely). Newcomers always seem to have a blast at Stumpy’s. It’s just the kind of thing that your dad will get a kick out of and tell all his friends about.
At the end of the day, historic West Chester is the perfect spot to treat dad to a great meal and a cocktail or two. It won a “Great American Main Street Award” for its vibrant combination of historical charm and buzzing food, arts, and nightlife scene. It’s the perfect end to a wonderful Father’s Day in the Philadelphia area.
All these activities and more are a possibility when you rent an apartment in West Chester, PA.
