{Places to Play in PA: Daniel Boone Homestead}

The kids and I took advantage of the beautiful sunshine one afternoon following church service and took a picnic lunch out to the Daniel Boone Homestead. Its a lovely stretch of fields, historical buildings, and a sparkling lake. On this particular visit, we ate our lunch under a nice shady tree and then the kids played some kickball/soccer game while I fed the baby. Then we went for a nice walk down to the dam and lake. After all our walking around (not to mention our legs were a little tired from a hike the previous day), we opted to skip out on most of the historical areas. We did visit the visitors center where there were some neat Daniel Boone facts, but our little band of explorers was pretty tired so we decided to call it an afternoon. Even without the historical tour area, we still spent over two hours there. If you choose to do the historical area there are timed tours as well as a small admission fee (I think maybe 3 dollars a person) to explore that area. There are over 500 acres of land so there is plenty to explore and much land to be hiked which makes it a lovely outing for a family. Check out their website for more information as well as for special events that they have going on throughout the year: http://www.danielboonehomestead.org/. Also, don't forget you can always search this blog for more Places to Play in PA-- happy travels!

I didn't know of this historical site so close to us. I will be looking into it further as a possible addition to our summer bucket list.
