You Can Watch Planes Land At This Underrated Cafe Near Philadelphia

The charming town of Medford, New Jersey is just half an hour outside of Philadelphia and it is home to plenty of attractions that make it a perfect day trip destination. You can go pumpkin picking at Johnson’s Farm, stroll the historic Main Street, and even treat yourself to a meal that will entertain the whole family… because you can watch planes and helicopters land as you enjoy the best breakfast and lunch in the area! The Flying W Airport is one of the most active in South Jersey, and it’s a full resort. In the summer, the airplane-shaped pool and tiki bar draws crowds from all over, and in the winter, you can enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Patti Wagon Cafe.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You can also catch some great bands at the Flying W when the indoor bar opens in the evening, but the airport itself quiets down once it gets dark. If you’re looking for more places to enjoy the sound and sights of jets and planes landing, you can also catch views of PHL from Fort Mifflin – which also happens to be Philadelphia’s Most Haunted Site!
