Are you looking for the best indoor playgrounds near Philadephia, PA? I’ve got you covered. Whether in West Chester, Exton, Downingtown, or another nearby town, you’ll find all of the best indoor play areas, trampoline parks, and more on this list of indoor play areas near Philadelphia.
I don’t know about you, but I start to go a little stir-crazy when we’re stuck inside. And so do the kids. Experts say that kids are supposed to get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In winter, with sub-zero temperatures and so much rain, shorter days…60 minutes is hard!
I’m so grateful that there are many indoor play areas near Philadelphia. My list below focuses on Chester County and is broken into towns like Coatesville, Downingtown, West Chester, and Exton. I’m confident this is the most exhaustive list of indoor play areas near Philadelphia.
I’ve also linked below to other indoor playgrounds in Delaware and New Jersey, so if you’re in the general tristate area, hopefully, you can find a place for you.
If you really want to splurge, take your kids to Kalahari, the best indoor waterpark in PA. We loved our visit there!
Anyway, here is my list, and then you can scroll down to see the other counties that have been covered.
