Get Out of the Cold!

linvillaWe were almost convinced we could get through the entire winter without it dropping below 50 degrees, but that no longer seems to be the case. So, what can you do when you and the family want to get out of the house but it feels like 8 degrees outside? Try indoor mini golf at Linvilla Orchards!

 

Linvilla Orchard’s Fore! The Planet is a highly interactive and playful museum exhibit created by the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia! This exhibition pairs important environmental issues with the fun of miniature golf. Eighteen unique educational holes explore butterfly metamorphosis, a tropical rainforest, evolution, dinosaur extinction, food chains, and more. Perfect for kids of all ages, your entire family will enjoy playing miniature golf while learning about our environment – every step of the way.

 

This exhibit goes until April 3, 2016 and occurs Monday- Sunday, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. For kids 10 and under, Fore! The Planet is only $4.95- and for everyone else it’s only $6.95! You can avoid the cold, and you can avoid the bank breaking family outing and spend a fun and educational (and slightly competitive) day with the family playing indoor mini golf.
