One of my son’s summer highlights has been his trip to Sesame Place in Buck’s County, PA. I grew up with Sesame Street, and as a teacher I love the educational, social, and cultural values it helps to instill. As a parent- I love it, too! There are versions of Sesame Street all over the world- from Russia to Mexico. Something about knowing that this sweet, educational show unites kids globally (literally) really touches me- and even more so now that I myself am a mom, teacher, and travel enthusiast. You can’t see the world until you go out and experience it- start young, and make a little global citizen. But I digress!
One of Little Man’s favorite rides was the Flyin’ Fish, which had Elmo faced fish of all kinds- with a unique Sesame twist, of course. After all, what is a catfish without ears and whiskers? LOL Kids can press a button in the ride, and make it rise up and down as it spins (slowly).
We made sure to find lots of time to take pictures with any characters we could find- Little Man’s favorite thing to do is “hug” all the characters everywhere we go. I especially loved going over to the recreation of the Sesame Street you see on TV- it looks just like it, and there is something so nostalgic about seeing Mr. Hooper’s store.
Hot as it was, we were glad to head on over to the The Count Splash Castle to cool off and ride some water slides. There is a giant water bucket, sprinklers abound, and everywhere you look there is something interesting that is just the right size for your toddler.
Sesame Place has great hours, and the season is nowhere near over- they are even open in the fall.
