A classic amusement park, Idlewild features such kid-friendly areas as Raccoon Lagoon, Jumpin’ Jungle, and Hootin’ Holler.

Fortunately, you have no shortage of spots to go tubing in Pennsylvania this summer. Float down the Stonycreek River in Johnstown, for example, for a few hours or for the whole day. Purchase a summer tubing pass with Bucks County River Country. Pale Wale Canoe Fleet, in Cooksburg, also offers scenic tubing tours down the award-winning Clarion River. You can choose between a 2.5-mile and a four mile tubing trip.
