This Canopy Walk In Pennsylvania Takes You ‘Out On A Limb’ For Amazing Views
University of Pennsylvania’s Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia is internationally famous for its immaculate gardens, which on their own are worth the visit, but this one-of-a-kind park has another attraction we think everyone – locals and visitors alike – needs to check out this summer.
We know we aren’t the only ones out there who absolutely lovetreehouses (we blame it on childhood nostalgia and the movie “Swiss Family Robinson”), so the “Out on a Limb” Tree Adventure at Morris Arboretum is pretty much a dream come true. The permanent exhibit is one part architectural art piece, one part hands-on educational experience, and one part treetop adventure gives you some of the best views around.
Admission into the Morris Arboretum is only $17.00 for adults and $9.00 for children and students. While you are there, you can also stop to see the luscious glass-roofed fernery, the grand rose garden, and the beautiful step fountain.
This beautiful oasis is the perfect place to spend an afternoon, or even many afternoons – the Morris Arboretum puts on incredible special events all year long! Check out their website to see the events calendar.
