Things to Do for Children and Families in Downingtown, PA

Family martial arts classes

Downingtown – like most of Chester County – is and continues to be a popular place for families. But for parents new to the area that are looking for activities to do with their kids, Downingtown doesn’t always feel like it has a lot to do. Many families here in Downingtown end up driving all the way to Philadelphia, and that’s quite a drive to do with your children every time you want to explore.

Luckily, there are plenty of activities for kids and families in or near Downingtown. The following are a few unconventional ideas that you should consider.
