Chanticleer

Thirty acres of a 1913 estate fashioned into a series of formal gardens including a meadow, woodland with shrubs and a produce garden.

Reviewed By MarthaKay2016 - Needham, Massachusetts

My daughter and I spent an entire afternoon here last Saturday exploring the grounds and gardens. The grounds are incredibly beautiful and unique. The many seats and benches throughout the property encourage quiet contemplation of your surroundings. We had a very enjoyable time and I look forward to going back for one of their picnic evenings!

The Stoogeum

Reviewed By BJ_Wanlund - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Made a little visit to The Stoogeum today, and it's basically a comedy fan's goldmine, especially if you're a gigantic Three Stooges fan. I've seen a couple of their shorts myself, and a few of their cartoon appearances, so I was semi-familiar with their catalogue. And even *I* was blown away by how extensive this place was. There are three levels. One has an art gallery of Stooges related art, one has a couple of Stooges arcade cabinets (including a Three Stooges pinball game and a modern Three Stooges ticket redemption game I think) and a number of artifacts, and one has a TON of goodies, like old lobby cards, old movie posters, old merchandise, lots of autographed pictures of the guest stars of many of those old Stooges shorts, and so much more. I actually spent an entire hour there (THAT I wasn't expecting), and I definitely plan on going back there, especially since I'm in the general neighborhood. If you're in the area and they're open (they're usually open on Thursdays from 10 to 3 or by appointment), go! It's a complete hidden gem of a location. It's tucked in behind an office park on a side street, but it is SO cool.

Elmwood Park Zoo

Reviewed By Nani1212 - Philadelphia, PA (USA)

This zoo is small but when you have toddlers is perfect. The zoo has done an outstanding job to have variety, and it continues to renew itself. From feeding giraffes, birds, petting zoo, etc. My kid is only three, so we have not tried the zip line. However, my hubby has enjoyed their beer area and to top it off they have a great park So a membership is highly recommended or if you want to do something fun with kids and not spend hours walking around this place is fantastic.

Plymouth Meeting Mall

Reviewed By Mandie W - Ambler

Love this mall. It’s great that everyone goes to the other malls nearby. This mall is great for my 3yr old to walk/run in without getting lost in a crowd. There is a carrousel and a play area. And we love chick fil a. Legoland was just added and they do many free events through the year for children.

Ambler Theater

The Ambler Theater, built in 1928, is a modified Spanish design. It is a nonprofit community-owned theater with approximately 6,000 members. The theater seats 140 and 110 in 2 of the auditoriums. Renovations to the third auditorium were completed in 2007 and it seats 270. The theater features dolby digital sound, stadium seating, handicap access and hearing impaired services.

Reviewed By Gary F - Maple Glen, Pennsylvania

The Ambler Theater is a local gem and an antidote to the horrid multiplex, cookie cutter theaters that predominate in the suburbs It is the closest movie experience to the Ritz theaters that we have in the suburbs. Much of the original architecture of an "ancient" movie palace have been retained. The lobby is small but authentic. So is the small refreshment stand.
Seats are comfortable and the theaters are small enough so the screen occupies much of your line of sight. The attendees are usually well behaved
and respectful of others.
Left for last is the outstanding moves that only Ambler brings to the screen - small independent productions, foreign films, documentaries, televised performances.

My second experience in an Escape Room. First was aboard a cruise ship. We won the first one, but wasn't sure it could be repeated. A corporate team-building activity brought us here. No spoilers, but the number of chambers and challenges in this were unique. They understand that players may only do this once, so they try to make the experience worthwhile, win or lose. We won, but the end was unexpected. I think I may quit while ahead.

Woodmont

Reviewed By schmutaki - new jersey

This castle like mansion was built in the late 1890's by industrialist Alan Wood. It is now and has been home to the International Peace Mission since the 1940's. Guided tours are available on Sunday afternoons from April to October. Woodmont was built in a French Gothic style and the view of the building from the long roadway leading to the estate is draw dropping. The inside of the house is beautiful as well. The entire grounds and home are immaculately maintained. This is a special place. A visit requires a certain respect be afforded to the hosts as this is a house of worship. We were taken around by a kind and friendly woman who was eager to talk about the estate as well as the teachings of the Peace Mission religion.

Fort Washington State Park

Rich in modern recreational facilities and historical significance, Fort Washington blossoms with flowering dogwood in the spring. The park takes its name from the temporary fort built by George Washington’s troops in the fall of 1777, before heading to Valley Forge. The park is popular with hikers and picnickers. Birders enjoy the seasonal migration of raptors from the Observation Deck.

Reviewed By LydiaK313 - San Jose, California

Given some of the lovely scenery and the other parks in the area, I expected a little more. There are a couple of walking trails - pet friendly with a nice bird watching observation area.
