Now that fall has arrived and our beach has closed, I'd love to take my 17 month old on some fun daytrips. Ideas?

I don't know if you have a local YMCA but they have weekly activities for toddlers. They have a gymnastic class and a steppers class and a play group class. You could check them out.

there is also Build a Bear (may still be a little young)

then there are the new "Toddler" gyms they seem to be putting up everywhere - not sure the name but I think it is something like JW Tumblers???

There is the Crayola Factory off of 78 in PA

Thanks! Crayola Factory! Great idea!

My daughter goes to My Gym and Honey Child Music already, so I'm really looking for daytrip kind of places.

This is not open yet, but opening this Fall, soon they said. An indoor Waterpark, sounds fun to me!

What about the Candem aquarium. The parking is safe there.
Is the Liberty Science Center good for a toddler? I'm not sure on that one.

Just noticed the other place I sent was an overnighter, Still looks fun!

Great idea for in a year or two. Right now, I think she'd be too wild.

It's extremely dangerous there. I had my foot stepped on by an inconsiderate 5th grader and a 4 year old girl screamed in my ear when I was trying to get a closer look at the open ocean tank. Seriously though, its fine, but be careful of school holidays. My fiancee and I went during some holiday (Columbus Day I think) and it was MOBBED! Too crowded, too loud, etc...but it is a world class aquarium. Just as good (albeit smaller and without a dolphin show) as the Baltimore aquarium. Also, if you don't want to park there take the River Line. It's extremely convenient.

Jullian, I would not have suggested to bring a child there if it wasn't safe.The parking is undercover right near the entrance. I have done a few Disney shows there and I brought my daughter and her friend with me.
We got a private tour to the upper tanks , because my boss knew some people there.He used to be an East Brunswick policeman.
Camden freaks me out, but not in the Aquarium area. There are 2 ways to go there , I would pick the one that takes you furthur on the tpke. It's all express roads that way.
