    Not sure if this counts as historical or not but a tour of the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary might be a fun. You can see some of the sites in Philly's Old City and catch a bus near the Constitution Center for a short ride to the prison: http://www.easternstate.org And of course everyone can run the Rocky steps in front of the Philly Art Museum.

    OK, I know you this is a PA page, but I'm wondering if you might try closer to home -- namely Snowshoe Mountain Resort in WV. This four-season mountain resort offers a slew of fun off-piste activities including boating and fishing on Shavers Lake. There's also a top-notch mountain-bike park here if your 11-year-old fancies trying some downhill biking. Nearby in action-packed Pocahontas County, you've also got attractions like the Cass Scenic Railroad and easy-grade biking along the Greenbrier River rail-trail. The resort is currently offering some activity-focused package deals that might suit your itinerary, too.

    What about a hiking or mountain-biking outing in Wharton State Forest, located in New Jersey on the way to Atlantic City? Loads of great trails there. You could also hike or bike the towpath trail in Delaware Canal State Park, which starts near Bristol and Silver Lake Park on the outskirts of Philly. No excuses for getting bored now!

    Without knowing where you're coming from, I'll assume you're looking for things to do in and around Sesame Place rather than places to stop on your way home. Obviously, Philadelphia and its various downtown attractions (Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Franklin Institute Science Museum, Adventure Aquarium, etc.) can easily eat up a day or two of your PA itinerary. The wider Philly metro area also offers an interesting mix of outdoor and cultural attractions; the website for the Great Philadelphia area (www.gophila.com) is a good place to dig up some ideas, as is the tourism website for Bucks County (www.visitbuckscounty.com).
